a: competitive inhibition ~
b: sitting on a seat in musical chairs


"Whereas competitive inhibition can be overcome by increased substrate/reactant concentration; non-competitive inhibition cannot be. Competitive inhibition is like sitting on a seat in musical chairs, so others can't sit on it. You'll have to get off eventually, so increased substrate/reactant will eventually defeat you."

"Non-competitive inhibition is like smashing that chair, so no one can sit on it, ever again."
