Expert Answer:

There is no basic difference between the direct combination reaction and synthesis. However, they are termed differently according to the demand of reactions.

Combination reaction is the combination of two or more compounds to get desired product. We can call the same process as the synthesis of that product.

A + Z →  AZ

Similarly, when we synthesize a compound, it must be done by the combination of two or more reactants and so it could be called as combination also.

But, when we need to give a preparation or synthesis we use "synthetic reactions" and when we need general combinations we call as "combination reactions"
