A) The enzyme would gain kinetic energy, at a point of time the rate of reaction wuld increase but later the enxyme would denature due to excess heat energy, enzymes have a optimum temprature

If the temprature is increased directly by 65 degrees, the enzyme would directly be denatured due to a rapid increase in temprature
