Solution

The correct options are
A Aorta
C Pulmonary vein
D Capillaries
The heart pumps oxygenated blood from the left ventricle into the arota. The aorta branches into arteries, which eventually branch into smaller arterioles. Arterioles carry blood and oxygen into the smallest blood vessels, the capillaries. The pulmonary veins are the veins that transfer oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart. The pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs.
