If HCl will not be secreted in the stomach, pepsinogen (proenzyme) and prorennin
(proenzyme) will not he converted into pepsin and remain respectively. HCl provides acidic medium. So, that the enzyme can act on food in stomach. It also kills bacteria and other harmful organisms that may be present along with food.
