My analysis and take on this question:
a) Wrong comparison- Comparing Kant's theory with areas of understanding, which is incorrect.
b) Limited by cognitive abilities needs to modify the human mind, but is modifying Hegel's theory
c) No obvious error, but not a fan of this option as it ends with a preposition
d) Even though is a dependent clause that needs a complete subject and a verb- This option is missing a main verb for the first part. The first part is a fragment(proposing is actually a modifier and not a complete verb)
e) Meaning error in CHoice E , as if Hegel's theory was limited by cognitive abilities- does not make sense.

Best Choice out of the lot is C, but it is not the perfect choice- can be improved substantially

For example Choice C can be reframed as :
Unlike Kant’s theory, which insists that the universe may be understood through the individual’s powers of perception, Hegel’s theory of rationality proposes that there are areas of understanding that the human mind, limited by its cognitive abilities, may never access.

Though by bringing his theory in WHICH clause somehow makes it inessential in phrase 1, while what the theory proposes is the main focus of the latter phrase in the sentence.

A) Unlike Kant’s theory of rationality, insisting that the universe may be understood through the individual’s powers of perception, there are areas of understanding that the human mind, which is limited by its cognitive abilities, may never have access to, as proposed by Hegel’s theory of rationality.
----Comparison issue

B )Insisting that the universe may be understood through the individual’s powers of perception, Kant’s theory of rationality is not like Hegel’s theory that, limited by its cognitive abilities, proposes that the human mind will never have access to certain areas of understanding.----limited by its cognitive ability must modify human mind--modifier issue

C)Hegel’s theory of rationality, unlike Kant’s, which insists that the universe may be understood through the individual’s powers of perception, proposes that there are areas of understanding that the human mind, limited by its cognitive abilities, may never have access to.--looks ok..

D)Even though Hegel’s theory of rationality proposing that the human mind, limited by its cognitive abilities, may never have access to certain areas of understanding, Kant’s theory insists that the universe may be understood through the individual’s powers of perception.---we need a sentence after even though

E)Unlike Hegel’s theory of rationality limited by its cognitive abilities proposing that there are areas of understanding that the human mind may never have access to, Kant’s insists that the universe may be understood through the individual’s powers of perception.
modifier issue
