Hello student, please check the solution of your question. Given below:

cosA+cosB=1
2cos(A+B/2)cos(A-B/2)=1
2(root3/2)cos(A-B/2)=1
cos(A-B/2)=1/root3
cos(A-B)=2cos2(A-B/2)-1= 2*1/3-1= -1/3

Thanks

cosA+cosB = 1
2cos[(A+B)/2]●cos[(A-B)/2] = 1
A+B = π/3
(A+B)/2 = π/6
2 cosπ/6●cos[(A-B)/2] = 1
Cos(A-B)/2 = 1/√3
Cos(A-B)=2cos^2[(A-B)/2] - 1
                = 2●1/3 - 1
                = -1/3
Now sin[(A-B)/2] = √{[1-cos(A-B)]/2}
                               = √(1+1/3)/2
                               =√4/6
                               =√(2/3)
Now |cosA - cosB|= | -2 sin[(A+B)/2]●sin[(A-B)/2] |
                                 = 2sinπ/6●sin[(A-B)/2]
                                 = 2●1/2●√(2/3)
                                 = √(2/3)
HENCE B&C option is correct
