2. ANSWER: D. None of the above
BAC, or Blood Alcohol Concentration (sometimes referred to as Blood Alcohol Content) is a measure of the amount of alcohol in a person’s bloodstream. This measure is used to identify the level of alcohol intoxication for medical or legal purposes.
At a BAC level of 0.04-0.05%, the intoxicated person is said to have a feeling of well-being. The person might feel a sense of euphoria, warmth or a fuzzy feeling. This range is not given among the choices.
3. ANSWER: D. Both A and B
As self-explanatory as it sounds, drinking in fewer quantities per hour and choosing drinks with lesser alcohol content will actually prevent one’s BAC from rising to dangerous levels. As explained earlier, BAC is the measure of one’s level of alcohol intoxication; thus, the lesser you drink, the less your BAC would be.
Eating before and during drinking actually help slow down the absorption of alcohol to a person’s bloodstream thus this should not be avoided.
4. ANSWER: A. Has to do with how quickly alcohol enters the bloodstream.
As briefly mentioned in the previous item, the rate of absorption is all about how fast the alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream. This is the reason why eating before and during drinking is actually good for you. Eating will make the rate of absorption slower, thus making you sober for a longer period.
5. ANSWER: D. Both A and B
No, it’s not true that alcohol does not effect some people. Regardless of tolerance, the higher the level of intoxication or BAC the person has, the more likely they are to lose control of their actions and feel tired, depressed, and/or nauseous. Drinking heavily will have these serious consequences no matter how “immune” to alcohol people claim to be.
