Solution

The correct option is B

Pulmonary artery


The rest of the blood vessels mentioned carry blood back to the heart, and therefore carry blood at much lower pressure. The pulmonary artery and the aorta, on the other hand, carry blood out of the heart, and therefore carry blood at tremendous pressure owing to the systolic pressure of the ventricles.
