C
Vagus
D
Accessory
Explanation: 

Detailed explanation-1: -The trigeminal nerve is the part of the nervous system responsible for sending pain, touch and temperature sensations from your face to your brain. It’s a large, three-part nerve in your head that provides sensation. One section called the mandibular nerve involves motor function to help you chew and swallow.

Detailed explanation-2: -The trigeminal nerve is the largest of the cranial nerves and provides sensory and motor innervation to the muscles of mastication. [1] More specifically, the sensory information conducted by this nerve includes touch, pain, and temperature.

Detailed explanation-3: -The trigeminal nerve (V) is the largest cranial nerve, and it has both a sensory and a motor division. The motor division of the trigeminal nerve, which has its own nucleus located in the pons, innervates the “muscles of mastication” and also the tensor muscle of the tympanic membranes of the ear.

Detailed explanation-4: -Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition characterized by pain coming from the trigeminal nerve, which starts near the top of the ear and splits in three, toward the eye, cheek and jaw. We have two trigeminal nerves: one for each side of our face, but trigeminal neuralgia pain most commonly affects only one side.

Detailed explanation-5: -It contains the sensory cell bodies of the 3 branches of the trigeminal nerve (the ophthalmic, mandibular, and maxillary divisions). The ophthalmic and maxillary nerves are purely sensory.
