Solution Description

The difference is that "continuous" can take any value (for example, between two values there will always be infinite intermediate values). Discrete can only take certain values. For example, the natural numbers are discrete (even when there are infinite quantities of values, between any two values there are a finite quantity. Example: between 1 and 10 you have 9 values). The real numbers are continuous. No matter how close are two values, you will find infinite values in the middle (between 1 and 2 you have 1.1, 1.01, 1.001, etc).
