    The one that is nonspecific to both Beta 1 and Bet 2. If you antagonize Beta 2 then you will cause bronchoconstrictor so you want to choose that as the bad guy.

    Mnemonic for Beta 1- antagonist only. A BEAM

    A- atenolol
    B- bexolol
    E- Esmolol
    A- Acebutolol
    M- Metoprolol

    So the answer is E. Nadolol is non specific
