The difference are -

  • A list holds different data such as Numeric, Character, logical, etc. Vector stores elements of the same type or converts implicitly.
  • Lists are recursive, whereas vector is not.
  • The vector is one-dimensional, whereas the list is a multidimensional object.

What do you mean by recursive? Kindly explain it in detail.

Hi,

  • In a recursive function (recursion), function calls itself. To solve any we break the programs into smaller sub-programs.

eg: 

5! = 5*4*3*2*1 = 120

  • The problem of getting a factorial of 5 is broken down into a sub-problem of multiplying the factorial of 4and 3.
  • Recursive functions call themselves. They break down the problem into the smallest possible components. The function() calls itself within the original function() on each of the smaller components. 
  • Due to this capability of containing other lists within themselves (lists), lists are considered as the recursive variables.

I hope this information will help you to understand. If you have a further query you can drop that in our community.
