Blood Vessels MCQ Quiz! Test

What do you know about blood vessels? Blood vessels are arteries and veins by which the blood travels throughout the body. Blood vessels include groups of arteries, capillaries, venules, and veins. Blood vessels that transport blood away from the heart are called arteries, and their smaller vessels are called arterioles. Smaller vessels that collect blood from the various organs are called venules. This critical quiz on blood vessels will help you to understand better how your body works.
