When we add a field MANDT of type MANDT then our table is client dependent and is visible to only that client. But if this Field is not added to the table then we can access the table using any client number.

Tables which can be access by all user are client independent (no mandt field in table) 
tables which can be access by some specific user are client dependent (use mandt field in table)

A client-dependent table has the field MANDT of data type CLNT, which indicates Client id.

A client-independent table does not have this field.

In client independent in same server client change the other client data table or record.

Client dependent means confined to that particular client ... for example SAP-SCRIPT is client dependent i.e scripts written in a client(for eg: 800) is confined that client only and not available in any other client in the same server.
where as Client independent means not confined to particular client....for example ABAP programs are client independents i.e programs written in one client is available in all clients in the same server

Client Dependent Tables are the ones which will have the first field as MANDT - Specifying that the data maintained in this tables are specific only to this table in this client say drd 110 and will not be available in other client say drd 105 .

Client Independent Tables are the Tables which will not have Mandatory Field and the data maintained in these tables are available across any clients.

A Client Dependent Table is viewable only by the credentials proposed. Only those people of same client login can see those contents of that table.

But a few tables, which need to show the same info for any client, those are made as client independent.

The syst table is a best example for client independent

Actually Z tables are client dependent tables. And MANDT is not mandatory. if you're using this field others can identify this is client dependent table or not.
