Polymerization and the break down of a polymer are two opposite reactions. What role does a water molecule play in both of them? A. A water molecule is released during polymerization, which helps in the formation of a bond, and it is added during the break down of a polymer, which helps in breaking the bond. B. A water molecule is added during polymerization, which helps in the formation of a bond, and it is released during the break down of a polymer, which helps in breaking the bond. C. A water molecule is added during polymerization, which helps in the formation of a bond, but it does not play any role during the breaking down of a polymer.

Polymerization  is a Chemical reaction in which two or more small, similar molecules are combined to make larger molecule water molecule play in both of them because In polymerization (dehydration sysnthesis), a water molecule is removed when it is removed  then bonds  join monomers together.  In hydrolysis  bonds between monomers are broken and a water molecule is inserted (as OH- and H+).
