A. Constriction of the right pupil and constriction of the left
B. Constriction of the right pupil and dilatation of the left
C. Dilatation of the right pupil and constriction of the left
D. Dilatation of the right pupil and dilatation of the left
E. No reaction of the right pupil and constriction of the left

The sensory limb is disturbed right, so the ipsilateral direct reflex, and contralateral consensual reflexes will be lost.
