Correct answer is B) Left hemiparesis. Latent Paresis Test (Mingazzini Strumpel Test): In this test, weakness or paresis becomes evident when the examiner supports the patient's upper and lower limbs in a flexed position, and the patient is then asked to maintain this position against gravity. Left arm and leg weakness (Descending): If the left arm and leg exhibit weakness and descend during the test, it indicates a localized weakness on the left side of the body.
