Answer :

Assertion statement is incorrect because, non-competitive inhibitors only bind to a different site of any enzyme which is generally called the allosteric site .


Reason statement is correct because, by binding at the allosteric site the non-competitive inhibitors changes the shape of the active site of the enzyme in such a way that the substrate will not be able to identify it.


Therefore, enzyme-substrate bonding is not possible.
