# The catalyst increases the rate of reaction because it

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{Increases the activation energy}\\(b)\;\text{Decreases the energy barrier for reaction}\\(c)\;\text{Decreases the collision diameter}\\(d)\;\text{Increases the temperature coefficient}\end{array}$

Decreases the energy barrier for reaction
Hence (b) is the correct option.
