    A. 7
    Explanation
    Women can have a maximum of 1 standard alcoholic drink per day. This is 5 oz of wine, 12 oz beer or 1.5 oz spirits. Men can have up to two standard drinks per day. The bad news, you can't save up the drinks and drink them in one to two days. They must be spread out over seven days to have health benefits and not have a negative impact on your health. Don't forget to drink one glass of water between drinks. And of course, some people on certain medications and women who are pregnant should consult their doctors before drinking any alcohol.
