Answer : Option 2) providing an alternative reaction pathway that has a lower activation energyExplanation : When a catalyst is added to a chemical reaction that increases the rate of reaction by lowering the energy of activation. Provides an alternative pathway for a reaction to proceed with a low of Ea energy. Usually a catalyst is never consumed in the reaction process. Will appear in the reaction mechanism steps, but not in the overall reaction as the reactants and the products.
