As we learnt in

Enzyme Catalysis -

Numerous reaction that occur in the bodies of animals and pants to maintain the life process are catalysed by enzymes. They are called biochemical catalysts.

- wherein

C_{6}H_{12}O_{6}(aq) \overset{zymase}{\rightarrow}2C_{2}H_{5}OH(aq) + 2CO_{2}(g)

 

Enzymes are most reactive within optimum temperature and are mostly inactive outside of that range. All other statements are correct.
