NEET Zoology Biomolecules Questions Solved

Which one of the graphs show the effect of temperature on the velocity of a typical enzymatic reaction?

Enzymes generally function in a narrow range of temperature (Figure c ). Each enzyme shows its highest activity at a particular temperature called the optimum temperature. Activity declines both below and above the optimum value.

Low temperature preserves the enzyme in a temporarily inactive state whereas high temperature destroys enzymatic activity because proteins are denatured by heat.
