Answer:

  1. Hepatic portal vein

  2. Deoxygenated blood

Explanation:

Hepatic portal vein is #"3-4 inches"# long vessel of hepatic portal system that receives the deoxygenated blood from spleen and #"GI"# tract organs e.g stomach, small intestine, stomach etc and deliver it to the liver. The blood being carried from the digestive organs is purely rich in nutrients. So the liver then starts to perform it's function by metabolising the nutrients present in that blood.
