Neuro Stroke patient with abnormal speech, comprehension and repitition

A 76-year-old man with hypertensive stroke presented with abnormal speech. He has a tendency to talk excessively; However, he cannot understand the spoken words of others or read written words. Speech is preserved, but language content is incorrect. While he is talking there are lots of substitutions of one word for another such as “telephone” for “television”. His comprehension and repetition are poor. Which part of brain is most likely damaged and which cerebral artery could be responsible for this presentation?

A) Posterior part of inferior temporal gyrus - 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 – Anteriro cerebral artery
E) Corpus callosum – Anterior cerebral artery
F) Anterior part of inferior frontal gyrus – Posterior cerebral artery
G) Thalamus – Anterior choroidal artery
