We know that

$a^2=b^2+c^2-2bc\cos A$

$\;\;\;\;=(\sqrt 2-1)^2+(\sqrt 2+1)^2-2(\sqrt 2-1)(\sqrt 2+1)\cos 60^{\large\circ}$

$\;\;\;\;=2+1-2\sqrt 2+2+1+2\sqrt 2-2.(\sqrt 2)^2-(1)^2]\large\frac{1}{2}$

$\;\;\;\;=6-2(2-1).\large\frac{1}{2}$

$\;\;\;\;=6-2(1).\large\frac{1}{2}$

$\;\;\;\;=5$

$a^2=5$

$a=\sqrt 5$

Hence (c) is the correct answer.
