Solution :-

Erythrocytes (RBCs), leucocytes (WBCs), and thrombocytes (platelets)are the cellular components of blood, which form 45% of the blood and are found in
the remaining fluid portion, called plasma. In mammals, the erythrocytes are biconcave colored cells that are devoid of the nucleus because it makes space for carrying and transporting respiratory gases. The leukocytes which are known as white blood cells are nucleated cells and are divided into mainly two types, granulocytes (neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils) and agranulocytes (lymphocytes and monocytes). All these leukocytes mainly help in destroying the foreign particles by their phagocytic nature. The megakaryocytes of the bone produce thrombocytes which are cell fragments and it helps during blood coagulation.
