Solution :-

The circulatory system of earthworms is of close type with the heart, capillaries, and blood vessels. The fourth, fifth, and sixth segments consist of blood glands and these blood glands produce blood plasma with dissolved blood cells and hemoglobin. The supply of blood takes place from the heart to all body parts by contraction of vessels and heart. In the nerve cord gut and body wall, the supply of blood takes place from small blood vessels.
