I caught a bug in a jar and gave it water, but instead of drinking it DROWNED itself! Does this show that even bugs have cognition?

you upset it to the point of suicide.

Insects lack the brain for something like cognition or reasoning.

I migh suggest he bug died off some other overlooked thing.

Insects can drown if stuck in water, they breath through spiracles on the sides of their body.

Many will drink water if that thirsty. A jumping spider can drown in 2 drops of water if it is in a puddle.

Heat may have been the killer here,a couple minutes in direct sun and your bug would cook.

Suicide? ants and scorpions will sting themselves to death if injured.

Hard to say without knowing all the details.

Keeping pet insects is quite easy, but a simple overlooked need, can kill it in short order.

Bugs don't drink water, so naturally it drowned.

No. Bugs generally get enough water from the food they eat and don't really drink. They breath though network of tiny openings along the abdomen called spiracles.

No. It shows you put too much water in the jar

No, it shows that bugs are stupid. You have to give them a very shallow water dish, or they will climb in and drink, not realizing they are drowning.
