Neuro What type of aphasia is this?

A 60-year-old man with a newly diagnosed focal brain lesion presents with aphasia. His ability to repeat words and his fluency are both impaired, and his language comprehension is also diminished. He has no other symptoms, and the remainder of his neurologic examination is unremarkable. From what kind of aphasia is he most likely suffering?
(A) Broca’s aphasia
(B) Conduction aphasia
(C) Global aphasia
(D) Transcortical motor aphasia
(E) Wernicke’s aphasia

please give reason for your answer
