# Question #c96f9

##### 1 Answer

Well, before answering the question, it's always useful to actually look at a **Michaelis-Menten plot**

The plot describes the rate of a catalyzed reaction,

So, starting with the first option

*A straight line connecting the points*

This is clearly not correct, since the plot actually uses a curve to connect the points.

*x-axis label of concentration units*

As you can see, this is correct, the x-axis does indeed feature concentration units; more precisely, the x-axis of a Michaelis-Menten plot represents the concentration of the **substrate**, or

*Points of initial velocity measured at*#[S]# *concentration*

This one is correct as well, since various substrate concentration will have corresponding initial velocities on the y-axis of the plot.

*A value of*#K_m# *half up the y-axis*

I'm not sure about the wording on this one.

So, if the question implies that **corresponds** to a value located half way up the y-axis, then it is correct.

In this case, it would correspond to
