A is not accurate

The alcohol content in a drink can vary greatly (ex: 5% for beer vs. 23% for vodka). So the BAC does not determine how many drinks a person has consumed, it only determines how much alcohol is in the blood from the drinks. For instance, a person who consumes 5 beers at 5% ABV, would have approximately the same BAC as a person who consumes 1 vodka and tonic at 25% ABV (alcohol by volume), given that all other contributing factors are equal (ie. gender, weight etc.). So choice A is not correct.
