While performing an experiment on the enzyme amylase, Macy uses three different pH solutions: pH 3.0, pH 4.0, and pH 6.7. She finds that all the starch is broken down fastest at pH 6.7. How would you justify these findings? A. The optimum pH for amylase is pH6.7, at which the rate of reaction is the highest. B. The minimum pH for the amylase is pH6.7, after which the reaction takes minimum time for completion. C. The optimum pH of amylase is between pH3.0 and pH 4.0, at which the enzyme takes maximum time for completion

I believe the correct response is A. The optimum pH for amylase is 6.7, at which the rate of the reaction is the highest.

I think the correct answer from the choices listed above is option A. The optimum pH for amylase is pH6.7, at which the rate of reaction is the highest since the function of this enzyme is to break down starch so at the pH where starch is broken down faster should be the optimum pH.
