difference between nerves, veins and arteries
arteries carry blood away from the heart


Explanation:
Arteries are muscular blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. They are contrasted with veins, which carry blood toward the heart.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artery

A nerve is an enclosed, cable-like bundle of nerve fibers or axons, which includes the glia that ensheath the axons in myelin. Neurons are sometimes called nerve cells, though this term is technically imprecise since many neurons do not form nerves.
