Ans: B. Dominant temporal lobe (?? not sure)
I know Temporal lobe Epilepsy is associated with distortion of figures.

Eight principle symptoms of temporal lobe damage:
1) disturbance of auditory sensation and perception,
2) disturbance of selective attention of auditory and visual input,
3) disorders of visual perception,
4) impaired organization and categorization of verbal material,
5) disturbance of language comprehension,
6) impaired long-term memory,
7) altered personality and affective behavior,
8 ) altered sexual behavior.

the better and best answer is
C. Nondominant parietal lobe


Numerous mental status cognitive tasks are available to test and
localize various brain dysfunctions. Construction apraxia—the
loss of gestalt, loss of symmetry, and distortion of figures—seen
in the task of copying the outline of simple objects, is localized
to the nondominant parietal lobe
