Q1.

a)

1ml = 0.79
14.9g/0.79g = 18.86ml

b)

13/300 x 175ml = 22.75

22.75/10 = 2.28 Volume of pure alcohol

c)

Yes, it's very hard to measure a slug and especially as many people would have a different definition of what a small amount is. I’m actually quite surprised a scientist would be so vague but again everybody would react to alcohol differently with age and size. 
I would like to agree with Professor Karol Sikora about small consumption of alcohol but I think the British heart foundation are giving better advice that there are safer alternatives for better heart health.

It would also depend on the Alcohol Content as to whether in a slug you are consuming as much as you would in a bottle with less volume,ie Would a Vodka slug be a higher concentrate than a slug of Ale?

I’ve chosen these two extracts because they highlight the dangers of the excess of too much alcohol as everyone has a different definition of a slug. They also point out that the benefits of drinking alcohol might not outweigh the negatives.
There are far more healthy ways to look after your heart than drinking a small amount of alcohol. Like the British heart Foundation mentions in the article about being more physically active, eating more healthy and giving up smoking.
