Guddi9 you have been posting questions on EE for a very long time. In that time I was hoping you would learn some basic research skills.

Why don't you use your friend Google first.
A quick search reveals:
https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/basic-git-commands-776639767.html

I would look to see if your question is answered in the above link.

If you still need assistance then please reach out.

Oh and by the way, asking what the advantages and disadvantages of things are before you have understood their meaning is a pointless question.

i got some more understanding on this


when we clone 3 copies created from Remote branch to local called Remote Copy and Local Copy and Commit Copy.

Fetch fetches from Remote Branch to Remote Copy.

Merge does merge from Remote Copy to Local Copy.

Fetch is more kind of a command to check the differences and if needed to fetch and then to merge to local copy through remote copy.


Pull on the other hand is combination of fetch(Remote branch to Remote copy) and merge(remote copy to local copy).

Commit commits from Local Copy to Commit copy.

Push basically pushes changes from commit Copy to remote Branch

When we use DIFF command it finds differences between remote copy and local copy.

When Client like to check the changes we make they need to repeat similar process as above by pulling the changes then DIFF etc.
