Yes, you guys are right,
PICA is the best answer from the list. I got it right.
however, on further look, i saw that for such a site, only ipsilateral loss of facial pain and temperature sensations will be affected(spinal tract and Nucleus of V) . Ipsilateral loss of all facial sensations as stated in the question will be a lateral midbrain lesion.
