Solution

The correct option is C Lyases
  • Lyases are a group of enzymes that cleaves a specific covalent bond and removes the group without hydrolysis.
  • Hydrolases break down the substrate in the presence of water.
  • Transferases are involved in the transfer of any group except hydrogen.
  • Oxidoreductases are enzymes that catalyse oxidation or reduction of substrates involving hydrogen transfer.
