Assertion (A) All enzymes are proteins but all proteins are not enzymes.Reason (R) Enzymes are biocatalysts and have stable configuration having an active site. (1) Both A and R are correct but R is the correct explanation for A (2) Both A and R are correct but R is not the correct explanation for A (3) A is correct but R is not correct (4) A is incorrect but R is correct.

Answer: (2)

Enzymes can be defined as biological polymers that catalyze biochemical reactions. The majority of enzymes are proteins with catalytic capabilities that are essential for maintaining various life processes, but all the proteins do not have the behaves as enzymes.

The active site of enzymes has a definite shape and the functional group for the binding of reactant molecules. The molecule binding with the enzyme is called the substrate group to form a very stable enzyme/substrate complex.
