From an experiment of blanks and one with inhibitor and enzyme, what methods are available to suggest the inhibitor is an inhibitor and how would we be able to suggest what kind of inhibitor it is?

If inhibition is occurring, the rate of reaction would be slower, or simply not reach it's end point.

Therefore comparative techniques which assess a like for like time point of the experiment would show an inhibitor is present.

The type of inhibitor can be determined by what affect it actually has on the rate of reaction, or whether it even reaches completion.

You would need to carry out different ratios of reagents to determine it's nature.
