A. adrenal sympathetic output -> epinephrine (actually 80% epinephrine and 20% norepinephrine)
B. sympathetic output to sweat glands -> ACh
C. sympathetic output to bladder -> norepinephrine
D. parasympathetic output to heart -> ACh
E. parasympathetic output to bronchi -> ACh

So, nor-adrenergic is the sympathetic output to the bladder (when the bladder is filling).
