The blood vessel that receives deoxygenated blood from the lower part of our body.

Answer :

The inferior vena cava is the largest vein in the body and carries deoxygenated blood from the lower half of the body into the heart. The left and right common iliac veins converge to form the inferior vena cava at its lowest point. The inferior vena cava begins posterior to the abdominal cavity and travels to the heart next to the abdominal aorta. Along the way up the body from the iliac veins, the renal and suprarenal veins (kidney and adrenal glands), lumbar veins (from the back), and hepatic veins (from the liver) all drain into the inferior vena cava.
