    Relative path is the path related to current working directory.
    EX.: var/root/cd virginia.
    Absolute is a complete path from present to end file/directory.
    EX.: create directory “Loundon” in existing “Virginia” directory.
    mkdir/var/root/virginia/loundon

    An absolute path is defined as the specifying the location of a file or directory from the root directory(/). In other words we can say absolute path is a complete path from start of actual filesystem from / directory.
    For example: /var/root/va
    Relative path is defined as path related to the present working directory(pwd). here is an example
    /var/root/va # cd /var/root/md
    this will change directory to md and will display it as /var/root/md
