  8. What are three major differences between arteries and veins?
    • 1.arteries carry the blood away from the hear whereas veins bring the blood towards the heart.
    • 2.arteries have more thickness ¬†whereas veins have thin walls.
    • 3.Arteries take oxygenated blood away from the heart and veins take de-oxygenated blood back to the heart.
