Hint
Direct democracy is the form of government wherein the power to govern the country liesin the hands of the people rather than the representatives. In other words, decisions are made by the people for themselves and not by the representatives. It is also known as pureor true democracy. Though on paper it can be viewed as the best democracy that can exist,direct democracy has been known to have its own cons. Most importantly, directdemocracies often tend to be overly majority oriented and could be vindictive in itsdispensation of administrative duties. 
 
Representative democracy is a form of democracy in which the people of the country choose their own representatives. The chosen representatives of the people frame laws of the country. In representative democracy people rule through their elected representatives.
