A deactivated deadly strain of bacteria was first treated with protease enzyme. It was then mixed with a harmless strain of live bacteria. The live bacteria became deadly. Which of the following statements is a valid conclusion from the experiment above?

a. Dead bacteria are more deadly than live bacteria
b. Protease enzyme causes live bacteria to become deadly
c. Killed bacterial components can make live bacteria deadly
d. Proteins are dangerous to live bacteria and kill them.

Is it B?
