Do you mean arteries, capilaries and veins? Or are you talking about a specific vessel. Like aorta?

If we are talking between arteries, capilaries and veins, you can find the answer yourself.
For a general info: Arteries carry blood AWAY from the heart, Veins carry blood TO the heart, and capilaries are found BETWEEN veins and arteries (except kidney).

You know what, I tried to find what they were and couldn't remember. That's why I called it "general info". :lol: Thanks. :)

@twinkle:
Maybe it is the first vessel that blood enters when leaving the heart to reach the body. And maybe you know the name of it. :)
