Carla, a 120-lb. woman, and her twin brother Carlos, a 200-lb. man, decided to celebrate their 21st birthday by equally dividing a six-pack of beer, although neither had consumed much alcohol before this time. You would guess thatA. Carla will be more affected by the beer than CarlosB. Carlos will be more affected by the beer than CarlaC. The twins will be equally affected by the beerD. Neither will be affected by the beer, because beer does not contain enough alcohol to bring about intoxication

2 Answer

  • It ultimately depends on how they metabolize alcohol, but my guess would be that Carla is more affected because she is smaller in weight and (most likely) size as well. Alcohol usually takes more time to “hit” larger bodies and absorb into their blood stream.
  • Carla will be more affected by the beer than Carlos due to her lesser body weight and size.

    How does body weight determine the amount of intoxication?

    • Individuals with a shorter stature will be affected more quickly.
    • Alcohol may travel throughout the body via the circulatory system and enter most tissues, with the exception of bone and fat (adipose tissue).
    • Body composition is essential because the concentration of alcohol in the body's lean tissues increases proportionally as the percentage of body fat increases.
    • hence Carla will be more affected by the beer than Carlos due to her lesser body weight and size.
