Question: Women have a greater BAL than men of the same weight because women have less __________.

B) muscle mass
C) alcohol dehydrogenase
D) body fat

alcohol dehydrogenase

Women have less alcohol dehydrogenase (enzyme which breaks down alcohol), and therefore up to 30% more alcohol may be absorbed into their bloodstream. Because of this, women usually reach a higher BAC than men after consuming the same amount of alcohol. If a man and woman of equal weight drank the same beverage, the woman’s BAC would be higher.
