    Correct Answer
    C. Zestril
    Explanation
    Zestril is not a high-risk medication because it is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. High-risk medications are typically those that have a higher likelihood of causing significant harm if used incorrectly or inappropriately. Potassium Chloride Injection is considered high-risk because it can cause serious complications if given in the wrong dose or route. Insulin is also high-risk due to the potential for hypoglycemia if the dosage is incorrect. Chemotherapy drugs are high-risk due to their potential for severe side effects and toxicity.
