What is the structure of alveolar ducts?

it dissolves oxygen in the fluid and from there it can diffuse to the alveolar cells.It goes right back to evolution where single cells have to absorb oxygen from water.All of our cells systems ae aquatic.

What part of the lower respirtory tract is made up of tiny air sacs where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged?

Alveolar ducts and tracts are the site of gas exchange in the lungs.

Which part of the respiratory system consists of air sacs with capillaries?

That sounds like a general description of the LUNGS.The lungs are loaded with pulmonary alveoli: small outpouchings along the walls of the alveolar sacs and alveolar ducts; through them, gas exchange takes place between alveolar gas and pulmonary capillary blood.
