  1. A is the answer and the winners are Clement and Area.
    Details Below:
    Enalapril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that has anti-
    hypertensive effects. It is an appropriate choice of antihypertensive in GL as
    ACE inhibitors are preferred drugs in diabetic patients. It is very important that
    diabetic patients have their blood pressure very well controlled as these
    patients have multiple risk factors towards the development of cardiovascular
    disease. Also both long-standing uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes
    increase the risk of kidney damage. GL had a myocardial infarction two years
    earlier. ACE inhibitors have a cardioprotective effect in patients at high risk of
    cardiovascular disease, including those who suffered a myocardial infarction.
