Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. All arteries, with the exception of the pulmonary and umbilical arteries, carry oxygenated blood. The pulmonary arteries carry blood from heart to the lungs. They are the only arteries (other than umbilical arteries in the fetus) that carry deoxygenated blood. The statement is false because no specific mention has been made regarding pulmonary artery. Arteries also transport oxygenated blood from the heart to the body.
