Arteries are best defined as the vessels which
(a) carry blood away from the heart to different organs
(b) break up into capillaries which reunite to form a vein
(c) carry blood from one visceral organ to another visceral organ
(d) supply oxygenated blood to the different organs
(a) Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart towards different organs. They generally contain oxygenated blood (except pulmonary artery which contains deoxygenated blood). The blood flows in an artery under alternate increased pressure with jerks.
