Okay so talking about 

LinkText: You need to mention the complete Link Text to access the element.

PartialLinkText: You just have to type the part of the text you know and the rest is taken care by Selenium.

The format for both are same 

driver.get("https://www.wikipedia.org/");

driver.findElement(By.partialLinkText("Foundation")).click();

The complete link text was Wikipedia Foundation so I just metioned Foundation and it works. This way you can use PartialLinkText in selenium.

Hey @Jino hope this helps.
