Question 5. Which of the following carries glucose from digestive tract to liver?
  1.    Pulmonary vein
  2.    Hepatic artery
  3.    Hepatic portal vein
  4.    None of these
Answer: Option C
: C

A system of veins leading from the digestive tract to capillaries in the liver of a vertebrate is known as hepatic portal system. Thus, absorbed products of digestion (except fat) go straight to the liver and not to the heart. Pulmonary vein conveys oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium of the heart. Hepatic artery supply blood to the liver.
