    Hi, I don't get what the substrate solution is in this question. Does this refer to the glucose as well since the glucose is the substrate that binds to the active site on the enzyme.

    Thanks

    The substrate solution would be the solution that the glucose is immersed in. The question certainly does refer to the glucose as well.

    The question states that the immobilsed enzyme is used to detect glucose, but doesn't specify whether it's detection involves direct or indirect methods. Since no other information is provided other than a solution containing glucose is inserted to the biosensor, you can safely assume that glucose is the direct substrate for the enzyme.
