Expert Answer:

1. Placenta is an organ which is fixed to a mother’s womb and provides nutrition ,excretion of waste material & exchange of gases from the developing foetus whereas umblical cord is a rope like structure which connects the developing fetus to the placenta. It transfers nutrients from placenta to foetus.
2. The placenta is discarded after the baby’s delivery while a portion of the umbilical stump still remains on the baby which gets wrinkled with age.
