Neuro Stroke patient with abnormal speech

A patient with sudden stroke has an abnormal speech which is difficult to initiate, non-fluent, labored, and halting. Writing is difficult, as well. Intonation and stress patterns are deficient. Language is reduced to disjointed words, and sentence construction is poor, omitting function words and inflections. Which part of brain is damaged and which cerebral artery could be responsible for this presentation?

A) Posterior part of temporal lobe - Anterior cerebral artery
B) Posterior part of inferior frontal gyrus - Middle cerebral artery
C) Posterior part of superior temporal gyrus Middle cerebral artery
D) Anterior part of superior parietal gyrus Anterior cerebral artery
E) Corpus callosum Anterior cerebral artery
F) Anterior part of inferior frontal gyrus Posterior cerebral artery
G) Thalamus Anterior choroidal artery
