Mr. Juniper Berry gulps a drink of 100-proof gin at hourly intervals starting at 8 PM. He can metabolize 1 ounce of this drink per hour. His first four drinks are 3/4 ounce each, and then he triples his hourly dose. What effect will this change in dose have on his plasma levels of ethanol, which are measured hourly?

A After about four drinks at the higher dose, the plasma level will reach a new plateau.

B Plasma level of ethanol will not change in response to the higher dose but toxic metabolite levels will rise exponentially.

C After increasing the dose, hourly plasma level will increase continually.

D Plasma level will decline gradually due to induction of metabolic enzymes.

E None of the above.
