What is parent cell and daughter cell in division of cell i cannot understand clearly

PARENT CELL ; it is a source for other cells and divides to form daughter cells
DAUGHTER CELLS ; formed by the budding or division of cell .
You can take example of Amoeba;
It is a multicellular organism and reproduce by binary fission which is a form of asexual reproduction.
At first the nucleus divides into two and then the body divides into two , each of the body
receives the nucleus,which forms the daughter cells

Parent cell is the cell from which daughter cell is formed. Ex- in cell division of amoeba the parent cell is fully grown amoeba and the daughter cells are those which will arise from that amoeba on division
