    Answer:

    The correct answer is – To withstand the high pressure of the outflow of blood from the Heart.

    Explanation:

    The heart pumps blood to different body parts at high pressure so that it can easily reach all the parts of the body quickly. To able to hold the pressure of the blood pumped at high-pressure arteries need thick walls.

    This pressure can be experienced as pulse and which required the walls of arteries and the middle layer or the tunica media to make it much thicker in arteries than in veins. In veins pressure caused by blood is very low pressure that allows them to be thin walls.
