Solution

The correct option is B

Alveoli


The air inhaled is taken by the lungs from where the oxygen is taken up by the blood stream. Lungs contain specialised structures called alveoli which are the site of exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the blood and air. Hence, the alveoli are responsible for absorption of oxygen into the blood.
