The figure shows the single line diagram of a 4-bus power network. Branches $b_1$, $b_2$, $b_3$, and $b_4$ have impedances $4z$, $z$, $2z$, and $4z$ per-unit (pu), respectively, where $z = r + jx$, with $r > 0$ and $x > 0$. The current drawn from each load bus (marked as arrows) is equal to $I$ pu, where $I \neq 0$. If the network is to operate with minimum loss, the branch that should be opened is
