ANY part ... up to and including the whole thing.
(For what it is worth, my stroke affected only the sensory strip associated with my left side, thus the stroke occurred on the right side and slightly posterior to the vertical mid-line of my brain.)
Stroke damage is always somewhere in the brain. However, you cannot say that every person who has had a stroke and is in a coma has had the stroke in the same part of the brain. Strokes can affect just about any area of the brain.
Strokes take place in the brain, and damage the brain. The body (other than the brain) is not damaged, however, it is the brain which controls all other parts of the body, so when the brain is damaged, the person who suffered the stroke may become unable to use some part of his or her body, even though that body part is not actually damaged.
Yes it will most certainly suffer some damage.
A stroke means that a part of the brain has been damaged or hurt and to repair this means having to make a new pathway in the brain in that area so it will work again. This is done through therapy with a medical professional like a speech therapist for people who have problems with language after a stroke. This takes time and effort on the part of the person who has had a stroke, but it effort it can improve life.
A hemorrhage can occur in any part of the brain.
Yes you can. Memory is not always lost and even then not necessarily entirely lost. It depends on which part of the brain has been damaged and how badly it is damaged as to whether one has or has not got memory after a stroke. Some people may even loose memory for only a short time after a stroke then it comes back.
An interruption of blood flow to any part of the brain is called a stroke. It can also be called ischemia, or an ischemic stroke.
It is the brains ability to shift functions from damaged areas of the brain to undamaged. For example: if the auditory part of your brain was damaged, another part of the brain may take on that task.
stroke....can kill you or leave brain damaged.

A haemorrhage can happen anywhere in the brain!
Depends on the size of the clot and the part of the brain it damaged. It also depends on the health of the patient before the stroke. Many factors come into play when you try to calculate how long someone will live after a stroke. A big factor is how fast medical help is received after the stroke has happened. The longer out from the stroke you are after you receive treatment, the poorer your prognosis is.
Its not the eye its the Brain.
all of it
The brain is plastic but usually not in the way that is described in the question. A damaged part of the brain remains damaged and healthy parts of the brain usually cannot completely take on the duties of the damaged part since it has its own duties to take care of. However when a body part is damaged (e.g. a person's eyes are blinded by external means), the part of the brain that is usually responsible for processing information from that body part can be repurposed to perform another, though still similar, action (e.g. the vision cortex of the blinded person will be repurposed to process hearing information).
It can affect either side depending on which side of your brain was damaged.
You are in danger of a stroke
A stroke is any disruption to blood flow around the brain. Technically, the blood/brain barrier does not allow blood to actually enter the brain. That can be one example of a stroke, if a blood vessel ruptures and causes blood to enter the brain. In normal operation, nutrients cross the blood/brain barrier to provide for the needs of the brain. If a blood clot stops blood circulation in an area of the brain, it's also considered a stroke. Typical body function during a bleeding event is to first stop the bleeding and then initiate repairs. All of that takes place without much thought on our part. The platelets form a shield around the cut other damaged area and stop the bleeding. When this happens inside the brain, part of the brain dies. When a blood clot forms inside the brain, nutrients are stopped and that too can destroy brain cells.
