Answer:

The Pulmonary Artery carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs and when the Pulmonary Vein carries oxygenated blood from the lungs back to the heart.

Explanation:

Arteries carry blood away from the heart.
Veins carry blood toward the heart.

Arteries carry blood rich in oxygen, oxygenated.
Veins carry blood with carbon dioxide, deoxygenated.

The only time this is not the case is in the circulatory system is when the Pulmonary Artery (8) carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs and when the Pulmonary Vein (9) carries oxygenated blood from the lungs back to the heart.
