### What's the color of blood?

• A.

Blue

• B.

Green

• C.

Red

• D.

Black

C. Red
Explanation
Blood is red in color due to the presence of a protein called hemoglobin, which contains iron. When hemoglobin binds with oxygen, it turns bright red, giving blood its characteristic color. However, blood can appear darker or even blackish when it is deoxygenated, such as when it is returning to the heart from the body's tissues. The misconception that blood is blue may arise from the fact that veins, which carry deoxygenated blood, can appear blue through the skin. However, blood is always red, whether oxygenated or deoxygenated.
