Well, the amino acid sequence (primary sequence) determines tertiary structure. The tertiary structure is a complementary shape to the substrate (i.e. starch) It'll compete for the active site of the starch digesting enzyme preventing ES complexes of starch and the enzyme to form (Unless it's a non-competitive inhibitor in which it'll bind to an allosteric site)

You have done competitive/non-competitive inhibition right...?

No actually we didn't. We just started an introduction to proteins in terms of structure and bonds. I daresay this homework was quote unusual as we still didn't do the enzyme section yet

Ah well that explains it. A bit harsh of your teacher to set you homework on something you haven't learnt yet. It's a pretty straightforward section of the course anyway.
