Answer

The person's body weight exceeds 200 pounds.

Work Step by Step

According to the graph, a person weighing 200 pounds would have a blood alcohol level of 0.08% after consuming 4 drinks in one hour. A person weighing less than 200 pounds would have a blood alcohol level of 0.08% after consuming 4 or fewer drinks. If a person has consumed 4 drinks in one hour and still has a blood alcohol level less than 0.08% then the person must weigh more than 200 pounds.
