The correct statement about blood pressure is: blood pressure is highest in the arteries farthest away from the heart. This is the reason why you can palpate or feel certain pulses in different parts of your body like on the neck, at the top of the elbows, and on the top of your feet. These are major arteries of the body where pressure of blood is exerted outward so that they can either reach other parts of the body or return the blood quickly to the heart.
