Calories consumed in excess of those with which the body needs to be provided to maintain its weight are normally stored as fat and the body gains weight. Alcoholic beverages are laden with calories. However, those people who regularly drink two or three alcoholic beverages a day and thereby exceed the caloric intake necessary to maintain their weight do not in general gain weight.

Which one of the following, if true, most helps to resolve the apparent discrepancy?


(A) Some people who regularly drink two or three alcoholic beverages a day avoid exceeding the caloric intake necessary to maintain their weight by decreasing caloric intake from other sources.

(B) Excess calories consumed by people who regularly drink two or three alcoholic beverages a day tend to be dissipated as heat.

(C) Some people who do not drink alcoholic beverages but who eat high-calorie foods do not gain weight.

(D) Many people who regularly drink more than three alcoholic beverages a day do not gain weight.

(E) Some people who take in fewer calories than are normally necessary to maintain their weight do not lose weight.

No one with a detailed explanation here ?


Let me try -

Alcoholic beverages are laden with calories however regular drinkers who exceed the caloric intake do not in gain weight.

Why , there must be something special with those habbitual drinkers ?

Options with some and many can be eliminated , since the stimulus talks about Regeular Drinkers in general , hence only (B) remains.

Hence Correct answer is (B)

Answer choice (A) : Read closely! The stimulus specifies that people who regularly drink two or three alcoholic beverages a day thereby excess the necessary caloric intake. This answer, which discusses individuals who avoid exceeding the caloric intake necessary, therefore addresses a different group of people does not explain the situation, this answer is incorrect.

Answer choice (B) : If the excess calories are dissipated as heat, then there would be no weight gain. Hence, alcohol drinkers can consume excess calories and still not gain weight.

Answer choice (C) : The stimulus discusses "people who regularly drink two or three alcoholic beverages a day and thereby exceed the caloric intake necessary." This answer choice addresses a different group of people than those discusses in the stimulus.

Answer choice (D) : The first flaw in this answer is that it simply states that individuals consuming alcohol do not gain weight but it offers no explanation for why these people have no weight gain. The second flaw in the problem is that it addresses the wrong group of people. The stimulus discusses people who drink two or three alcoholic beverages a day; this answer addresses people who drink more than three alcoholic beverages a day.

Answer choice (E) : Again, this answer discusses a different group of people than those in the stimulus. The stimulus discusses people who exceed the necessary caloric intake; this answer addresses people who do not meet the necessary caloric intake.

A is clearly wrong b/c even if "decreasing the amount" does take place, excessive calories are already present in the body.

Hi hazelnut,

As there was no where mentioned that dissipation of heat results in reduction of weight, I have eliminated B and selected A though it mentioned some regular drinkers. Also, one can eliminate A based on the reason that - If someone avoids caloric intake from other sources doesn't mean there will be no gain in weight with drinking alcohol.

Any comments on this?
