Neuro Left sided weakness and tongue deviation!

A 55-year-old woman comes to the emergency room complaining of sudden weakness in her left arm and leg. She was alert and oriented to time and place. On physical examination, there was a loss of discriminative touch, conscious proprioception, and vibration sense on the left side. On attempted protrusion, the tongue was deviated to the right side.
What artery is involved?


A) Right Posterior inferior cerebellar artery
B) Right Anterior inferior cerebellar artery
C) Right Posterior cerebral artery
D) Right Paramedian branches of basilar artery
E) Vertebral artery
F) Anterior spinal artery
