Thanks for posting, I will try my best to solve your query.

A motherboard is the main circuit board in a computer that connects the various components together, including the central processing unit (CPU), memory, and peripheral devices. The motherboard provides the connections and interfaces for the CPU, memory, storage devices, and other components. For example, a motherboard may have slots for memory modules, connectors for storage devices like hard drives and solid-state drives, and ports for peripherals like keyboards and mice.

The CPU, also known as the "brain" of the computer, is a chip that performs the instructions of a computer program. The CPU fetches and executes instructions, performs calculations and manages the flow of data in a computer. It is a small chip that sits on top of the motherboard and is often referred to as the "heart" of the computer because it performs the most important tasks.

An example of the difference between a motherboard and CPU is like a city and a mayor. A city is like a motherboard, it has all the infrastructure and facilities like roads, buildings, hospitals, schools etc. and it is responsible for connecting all the parts together and making sure they work as a unit. The mayor is like a CPU, he is responsible for making decisions, managing the city's resources and ensuring the smooth functioning of the city.

Hope you are clear now, thank you.
