Solution

The correct option is C They carry oxygened blood.
  • Veins collect deoxygenated blood from different parts of the body towards the heart.
  • In veins blood flow under low pressure so they have valves to prevent back flow of blood.
  • Whereas arteries carry oxygenated blood to different parts of the body.
