    An enzyme in some bacteria catalyses the linking together of polymer chains in their cell walls. This makes the cell wall strong.
    a) is this an example of a breakdown or synthesis reaction? Explain your answer


    Can someone explain this question to me? you don't have to properly answer the question, I'd rather do it myself but I don't get the question.
