Correct Answer:
(C) 9 mg caffeine / 1 kg body weight

Explanation:
Consumption of greater than 9mg caffeine / 1 kg of body weight may result in side effects such as anxiety, gastrointestinal disturbance, restlessness, insomnia, tremors, and heart arrhythmias.

Even without knowing the exact answer, you should have been able to look at the answer choices and eliminate two of them right off the bat. Ask yourself, “Does 9 grams or 90 grams of caffeine per kilogram of body weight sound reasonable?” If you took a 220 pound man (100 kg), do you think they’d be okay with consuming up to 900 grams or 9 kilograms of caffeine? That’s completely unreasonable. The answer has to be in the milligrams and not grams.
