The arteries which supply blood to the muscles of the heart are called
- A. Coronary
- B. Hepatic
- C. Pulmonary

Answer: A. Coronary
The coronary arteries are specifically responsible for supplying oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle itself. They branch off from the aorta just above the aortic valve and wrap around the heart, delivering blood to its various chambers and walls.
- Hepatic arteries supply blood to the liver.
- Pulmonary arteries carry oxygen-depleted blood from the heart to the lungs for gas exchange.
- Renal arteries supply blood to the kidneys.
