I don't think there's supposed to be a direct correlation as to which is the "lock" and which is the "key" in the analogy of the "lock and key" hypothesis of enzyme-substrate reactions, but if you're going to work through it, the enzyme is most probably the lock, while the enzyme is the key.

There's a thread where you can post homework questions, so next time you have a question like this, post it there.
