I understand you to be asking if the shot of alcohol has the same ABV as the vodka in the bottle (liter). It does. I think that there are people that would be drunk on that single shot of vodka.

The shot does not contain the same TOTAL amount of alcohol as the bottle.

"Is it possible to get as drunk on only a 50ml shot as a litre bottle if there both the same percentage?is that possible or am i completely wrong?"
You are wrong and I believe that you know that.

Percentage wise, yes. Volume of alcohol in 50ml is 1/20 of a 1L bottle.

So, if the vodka is 40 proof, (20% alcohol), there is 200ml of alcohol in the 1L bottle. There for, 50 ml will contain 10ml of alcohol.

well yes its not the size its the amout of alcohol within the drink its like saying is there more hydrogen molicules in a glass of water or a gallon of water you know

i know how it works hard to explain

Completely wrong. If they are the same percentage, 50ml is
one-twentyith of 1L, let me know if you need me to elaborate

Alcohol by volume is the key, not the size of the bottle

IT`S THE SAME PERCENTAGE BUT YOU ARE JUST DRINKING MORE(MY HEAD HURTS NOW)

YES

not sure
