(a) whale respire under water.

(b) structure of whale and human is different.

Best Answer

(c) whale can take more oxygen at a time

Humans exchange only about 17% to 20% of their lung air with each breath while whales exchange 80% to 90% of their lung air volume with each breath, which helps the whale to retain in water for a long time without breathing.
