okk..i really dont know...what i am thinking is...
(a) loss of taste from anterior two third of tongue same side is 7th nerve
(3)loss of secretions in sublingual and submandibular glands of same side is 7th nerve
(5)loss of lacrimation, is pterygopalatine, 7th nerve
he will have hearing loss

sooo my guess is 2 loss of parotid secretions, 9th CN
