ACE inhibitors are used in HTN with diabetic nephropathy so A is correct

nitroprusside is used for hypertensive emergencies...but i dont see the emergency here

for the pregnant female we would use methy dopa or hydralazine but i dont see it here again

losartan/milrinone is used for chronic CHF because it prevents cardiac remodelling

propranolol for 50-year-old man with BP of 140/95
