    Hello meral,
    I think your question is too general.
    All we could do is to quote dictionary definitions and guess about why you might be confused.
    Why don't you tell us what it is about, for example, civic and civil that you are having trouble with?
    Then we should be able to help.

    "Civil tends to emphasize respect for autonomy, fairness, and a sense of justice" {civil rights}. "Civic tends to be more mindful of the forging, through deliberative and communal activities, of a sense of common purpose" {civic duty}.
