    The ONLY veins that carry oxygenated blood are called the......

    • A.

      Superior veins

    • B.

      Blue veins

    • C.

      Red veins

    • D.

      Pulmonary veins

    • E.

      Aortic veins

    Correct Answer
    D. Pulmonary veins
    Explanation
    The pulmonary veins are the only veins in the body that carry oxygenated blood. After oxygen is exchanged in the lungs, the pulmonary veins transport the oxygen-rich blood back to the heart to be pumped out to the rest of the body. This is in contrast to other veins, which typically carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart.

      Vesicles

    • C.

      Valves

    • D.

      Atria or atrium

    Correct Answer
    D. Atria or atrium
    Explanation
    The two uppermost chambers of the heart are called the atria or atrium. These chambers receive blood returning to the heart from the body and lungs. They then contract to pump this blood into the lower chambers of the heart, known as the ventricles, which then pump the blood out to the rest of the body.
