go to wikipedia and look them up.  The differences are too huge to fit into this little box.

explain me the basic diferences in few sentences.
The biggest and most notable differences are

C#: object oriented ./. C: not object oriented
C#: interpreted meta-language ./. C: compiled and linked into directly executable code
C# has some different datatypes, the syntax for declaring types such as an array is different.

C# has classes, C does not

C# has many other language structures and flow control keywords and syntax, such as ''foreach' that C lacks

C has a preprocessor, supporting conditional compilation and macros, C# does not

C# is made by MS primarily for the .NET framework, C is not, and is a much older/more mature language.
