(Answer to Q. 1)  ANS: A

(Answer to Q. 2)  ANS: A
Acetylcysteine is indicated for treatment to reduce accumulation of airway secretions. It is also used to treat or prevent the liver damage that can occur when a patient takes an overdose of ac-etaminophen.

(Answer to Q. 3)  ANS: C
Because their duration of action is approximately 4 to 6 hr, these drugs were more suited to maintain therapy than catecholamines and could be taken on a four-times-daily schedule.

(Answer to Q. 4)  ANS: C
Arformoterol (Brovana), the single (R)-isomer of formoterol, is the newest long-acting beta ago-nist on the market.
