The correct answer is: 2
Rationale 1: Cottage-cheese-and-peach salad and blueberry pie are not significant sources of the potassium needed to help prevent digoxin toxicity.
Rationale 2: Fish, sweet potatoes, and bananas are high in potassium, which will help prevent digoxin toxicity.
Rationale 3: Green bean soup, whole-wheat bread, and an apple are not significant sources of the potassium needed to help prevent digoxin toxicity.
Rationale 4: The hamburger is high in potassium, but the french fries are not appropriate for a cardiac client.

Reasoning: Fish, sweet potatoes, and bananas are high in potassium, which will help prevent digoxin toxicity. Cottage-cheese-and-peach salad and blueberry pie are not significant sources of the potassium needed to help prevent digoxin toxicity. Green bean soup, whole-wheat bread, and an apple are not significant sources of the potassium needed to help prevent digoxin toxicity. The hamburger is high in potassium, but the french fries are not appropriate for a cardiac client.
