Answered by wiki @


Answer:

Arterioles - D

Arteries - C

Veins - B

Capillaries - A

Venules - E

Explanation:

This question is describing the blood vessels that make up the circulatory system. The blood vessels with their accurate description are as follows:

- ARTERIES: Arteries are the most elastic and thick-walled blood vessels that functions to carry blood away from the heart using great pressure. Arteries are muscular, flexible tubes that carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the arterioles.

- VEINS: Veins are blood vessels that carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart. Veins have a thin wall and are less elastic in comparison with arteries.

- CAPILLARIES: Capillaries are smallest blood vessels designated to connect the smaller arteries or arterioles to venules. They are also thin-walled.

- ARTERIOLES: Arterioles are small arteries or branches of an artery that connects the arteries to capillaries. Arterioles deliver blood to capillaries.

- VENULES: Venules are tiny veins or branches of a vein that connects the veins to the capillaries. Venules deliver blood from capillaries to veins.
