Final Answer :
B
Explanation :
Difficulty in understanding figurative language, such as proverbs, is often a symptom of a neurocognitive disorder, such as Alzheimer's disease or frontotemporal dementia. It is not typical of an onset of aphasia, severe intellectual disability, or Tourette's disorder.
