I go with A

C is wrong because of "allowing him" and D is wrong because of the idiom "ability to". Among the other options, I think that because is better than because of in this sentence

'Ability to' is the correct Idiom: C and D are wrong

'Because of Improving' is idiomatically incorrect: B and E are wrong.

Ans A

A. is especially critical in enhancing cognitive abilities because it improves brain's ability to adapt and change, allowing one -- best option as per me.
B. is especially critical in enhancing cognitive abilities because of improving brain's ability to adapt and change, allowing one --what is improving brain's ability ?
C. is especially critical in enhancing cognitive abilities because it improves ability of one's brain to adapt and change, allowing him -- allowing him but not allowing her :) funny. "Ability of" is incorrect idiom.
D. is specially critical in enhancement of cognitive abilities because it improves brain's ability in adapting and changing, allowing one -- "ability in" is incorrect idiom
E. is specially critical in enhancing cognitive abilities because of improving brain's ability to adapt and change, allowing one -- Again what is or who is improving brain's ability ?

I remember i did some SC OG question, which had split between especially and specially. I think option with "especially" was correct in that SC problem. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between especially and specially.
