Consider the reaction $2H_2O_2(aq)\rightarrow 2H_2O(l)+O_2(g)$ wen 1g of KI is added to $H_2O_2$,bubbles of $O_2$ are produced at an increased rate.When reaction is complete,mass of KI is 1g.The KI is a

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;product\\(b)\;reactant\\(c)\;catalyst\\(d)\;reaction\;intermediate\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

Catalyst is substance which just increases rate of reaction by decreasing activation energy without being consumed in reaction.
Mass of KI before and after reaction is same (i.e) 1 gram.
So it is catalyst.
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
