Final Answer :
Explanation :
Moderate drinking at family gatherings suggests a cultural norm that promotes responsible alcohol consumption and emphasizes social aspects rather than excessive drinking. A and C are not necessarily effective prevention measures, as alcoholism can occur regardless of the context or setting, and national abstinence enforced by law may not be a realistic or desirable solution.
