Assertion : In alcoholic drink, the alcohol is converted into glucose in the liver.
Reason : Liver cells are able to produce glucose from alcohol by back fermentation.
In liver, alcohol is oxidised into acetaldehyde which is further oxidised into acetate. The latter is converted to acetyl coenzyme A which is used in Krebs' cycle.
Ethyl alcohol Acetaldehyde Acetate Acetyl Co A CO2 + H2O
