If you ever get confused with the diagram remember:

CN 1,2,3,4 - Midbrain CN 5,6,7,8 - Pons CN 9,10,11,12 - Medulla

Since only one structure in the diagram is coming out of the medulla then it has be the vagus nerve


B = CN V




F = CN X

A is oculomotor Theres 4 cranial nerves that are medial (3, 4, 6, 12) So C is abducens B is big fat one so trigeminal I think D is 8, and E is 9 so Vestibulocochlear and Glossopharyngeal I guess F is vagus....

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is remember that last time they used this picture D & E were CNs VII & VIII, so anything else on the right side or down from there could be the right CN X.
