What are the roles of hydrogen peroxide, oxygen, hydrogen, and catalase in the following chemical reaction? Catalase- 2H2O2 - O2 + 2H2O A. Catalase is an enzyme, O2 and H2O are substrates, and H2O2 is a reactant. B. Catalase is a substrate, O2 and H2O are substrates, and H2O2 is an enzyme. C. Catalase is a substrate, O2 and H2O are products, and H2O2 is an enzyme. D. Catalase is an enzyme, O2 and H2O are products, and H2O2 is a substrate. I really don't understand the answer. I think it's A but I'm not sure

    Catalase is an enzyme that catalyzes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen. Can you figure it out with just this sentence?
