b) more surface area for diffusion of gases.
it can also be a) i m confused in a) and b)
no, it is not a). you compare two lungs of equal volume, one with alveoli and one without. the difference is the surface area. just for number freaks out there: the volume of a human lung is about 5 to 6 litres. its surface area is about 250 square meters! w/o alveoli, the surface of a 6 liter lung would be around 0.05 square meters, maximum. this allows for a rather quick diffusion. diffusion is a slow process, normally, this is why the increased surface is needed.
