The diagrams below show structures from the circulatory system and respiratory system.

Which statement below best summarizes how the two organ systems interact with one another?

  • Muscles contract to move the bones and ligaments of the body
  • The brain sends messages through neurons to ensure the heart beats
  • The lungs take in oxygen from the environment and arteries circulate the oxygen through the body
  • The stomach extracts nutrients from food and the arteries circulate the nutrients through the body


  • The lungs take in oxygen from the environment and arteries circulate the oxygen through the body
