Solution

The correct option is D All are correct
Interstitial fluid: It is the fluid which is found in the spaces around cells. It comes from substances that leak out of blood capillaries (the smallest type of blood vessel). It helps bring oxygen and nutrients to cells and to remove waste products from them.

Interstitial fluid is a biological fluid present between the cells and tissues, comprising a similar composition to that of the plasma. Exchange of nutrition, gases between blood and cells always occur through tissue fluid. The lymphatic system collects excess fluid that drains from cells and tissue throughout the body and returns it to the bloodstream, which is then recirculated through the body.

So, all the given statements are correct.
