I think the answer is B
what i know is that middle meningeal artery has higher blood pressure since it is an artery , so hemorrhage will occur faster. bridging Veins since they are veins they have lower blood pressure and thus need extra time for making a hemorrhage that cause signs and symptoms, since here the symptoms were delayed for 18 hours , then I think the answer is B
