    You take decision on something.
    We finally came to a firm decision on the matter.
    You take decision about some proposal.
    They took a couple of decisions about where to invest the surplus money.
    You take decision to act.
    She refused to reveal her decision to quit service.
    I felt she wasn't happy with my decision to get married.

    So (a) is approptiate and more common although use of the rest is grammatical.
