    The enzyme/substrate complex is aligned to improve access during a reaction. The enzyme breaks the substrate apart to prepare for the reaction. The substrate uses enzyme energy to start the reaction. The active site releases the substrate and replaces it with an inhibitor.

    I would go for A because enzymes break downs the substrate into simpler molecules for next step to take place. For example food molecules are broken down in simpler molecules for absorption
