B- and T-cells are both produced in the bone marrow, but T-cells leave the bone marrow to mature in the thymus

Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that defend the body against parasitic worms by positioning themselves against the worm and discharging the destructive contents of their large cytoplasmic granules.

I guess just the largest blood vessels, like the ones that connect to the heart.
I wasn't very specific, so you can probably name whatever blood vessels you want, as long as you get the location right.

main artery, connects to left ventricle, takes blood to systemic capillaries
veins, connect to right atrium
connects right ventricle and lung
connects left atrium and lung.
Remember, try to wait a little for the other person to confirm that you are right.
