Was the Biblical Adam Cognitive?

Suppose we take the Biblical account of creation as given. Given Eve chose to disobey God, and given Adam chose comfort of Eve’s body and companionship over eternal life, clearly Adam and Eve were cognitive. Given evidence for cognition arises in context of a choice between obedience and disobedience, however, the sin context does not reveal the extent to which Adam and Eve possessed cognition in context of a sinless world.
