Specific Activity:
1. d) a and b.

Enzyme
2.
a) Wouldn't do much good if it were at the end.
b) If its at the beginning, then allosteric (negative) inhibition of the product could occur. So this could be right.
c) Isn't a sigmoidal curve an S-shaped curve?

Either it's B or E...sorry I don't know this one for sure. I'd put B. =p
