Why not lipase?

Peptidoglycan (murein mucopeptide) consists of murein, which is broken down by lysozyme.

And since Peptidoglycan is about 50% or more of the cell wall of gram +ve bacteria, it can be easily destroyed by lysozyme.

Lipase - phospholipids.
Lysozyme - murein.
Pectinase - pectin of the plant cell wall.
Peroxidase - h2o2.

Explain in detail.

I also think B is the answer because it breaks the interlocking sugars (NAG-NAG-NAG) that form part of the components of the cell wall.
