B is the answer and winners are Solace and Eze.
Details Below:
Salmeterol is a long-acting beta2 agonist with a duration of action of about
12 h. Onset of action occurs within 10 to 20 minutes of administration by
inhalation but the maximum effect is not achieved until regular administration
of successive doses. It cannot replace salbutamol in the relief of an acute
asthma attack. It is recommended to be used in combination with an inhaled
corticosteroid as life-threatening asthma attacks have been reported following
the use of salmeterol without an inhaled corticosteroid.
