Grade 12 Biology

I am confused about this question, and can't find anything on the internet, anyone care to explain?

Why is the tertiary structure of an enzyme, such as amylase, so important?

An enzyme is a protein, so is it really asking why is this stage important? And it would be important because this is where the folding occurs, and the way it folds is important to how the overall protein turns out. Is this right?
