[A]. Son
[B]. Brother
[C]. Cousin

My fathers wife means : Deepaks mom.

Hence daughter of my fathers wife means she is the sister of deepak. Therefore the boy playing with football is the Nephew of deepak.

As per my logic, The right answer should be a cousin.

According to the given data, the right answer is nephew. Because we call brother only for siblings. Brother/sister's son is called nephew.
