Veins Are the blood vessels that carry deoxygenated blood from parts of our body back to the heart.
Capillaries Are the smallest of blood vessels. They serve to distribute oxygenated blood from arteries to the tissues of the body and to feed deoxygenated blood from the tissues back into the veins.
Arteries Are the blood vessels that deliver oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the tissues of the body.
