  i remember i put J as my answer and that was wrong....i though it was wernicke's only...

this guy couldnt comprehend so it cant be conduction----conduction has intact comprehension

DIT---i think its a great review of FA...if you havent done it you should...definitely will help you boost your score 10-30 points

  Well i think it has to be H, I or J....and i put J you put I so i am guessing it should be H...i mean the other answer choices dont even make sense unless its like F?

This was a tough question
