Solution

The main components of the transport system in human beings are the heart, blood, and blood vessels.

  • The heart pumps oxygenated blood throughout the body. It receives deoxygenated blood from the various body parts and sends this impure blood to the lungs for oxygenation.
  • Blood helps in the transport of oxygen, nutrients, CO2, and nitrogenous wastes.
  • The blood vessels (arteries, veins, and capillaries) carry blood either away from the heart to various organs or from various organs back to the heart.
