Solution

The correct option is C

Coronary artery


Coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply blood to your heart. The build-up of fat in the coronary arteries makes the arteries narrower, restricting the flow of blood to the heart muscle. When the flow is completely cut off, the muscles in the heart do not receive oxygen and stops working. This condition is known as a heart attack.
