difference between acronyms and abbreviations with example

Hi nitika.jain061,
Abbreviations are shortened forms of a word or a phrase. They usually consist of a letter or group of letters from the given word or phrase. For instance, M.A.C. (which stands for Media Access Control), L.O.C.(which stands for Line of Control),etc.
Acronyms, on the other hand, are abbreviations formed with the help of the initial components in a name or a phrase, in order to form a new word altogether, such as UNICEF (which stands for United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund), UNESCO (which stands for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) etc.
I hope this explanation fulfills your query. Have a nice day!
