    is it because it increases the activation energy?

    No actually it decreases the activation energy . Enzyme is a catalyst right? So they increase the rate of a reaction. Enzymes increase the rate of the reaction by reducing the activation energy needed for the chemical reaction without being used up during the reaction. Activation energy is the energy needed to start a reaction. The greater the activation energy the lower the rate of reaction.

    Yeah Is this a multiple choice question ? If not u can write it like this. Enzyme is a catalyst. So it increases the rate of reaction by reducing the activation energy and also without being consumed during the reaction :)
