Expert Answer:

(i)Diastolic pressure is the pressure that is exerted on the walls of the arteries around the body in between heart beats when the heart is relaxed but systolic pressure is the measure of the amount of pressure that blood exerts on arteries and vessels while the heart is beating.
(ii) Range of systolic pressure ranges between 60-80 but diastolic pressure is 90-120.
