ACE inhibitors work on the renin-angiotensin system to prevent the conversion of angiotension I to angiotensin II. Because this blocking occurs in the cells in the lung, which is usually the site of this conversion, the use of ACE inhibitors often results in: a) spontaneous pneumothorax. b) respiratory depression. c) unrelenting cough. d) pneumonia

    c) unrelenting cough

    Explanation:

    ACE inhibitors stand for Angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors. ACE inhibitors are used for the treatment of high blood pressure and heart diseases. These inhibitors perform their action by causing a relaxation of the blood vessels which results in decreased blood pressure. Further, these inhibitors prevent the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II and the site of this conversion is the lungs, since this conversion is blocked by these inhibitors, an unrelenting persistent cough is a common side effect associated with the use of these inhibitors.
