mysql_fetch_row ::Return row as aan enumrated array and each line contain a unique ID .example.
$result=mysql_query($query);
while($row=mysql_fetch_row($result))
{
print "$row[0]";
print "$row[1]";

}

$result=mysql_query($query);
while($row=mysql_fetch_array($result))

Let's take one example :
one table says
create table  student
(id  int(5),
name varchar(50));

mysql_fetch_array:

--> it returns array as index as table field name as well as it's index number
from table student you fetch record like this:
while($res=mysql_fetch_array($rs)){

    echo  $res['id'] ;// print id value
        or
    echo $res[0];// same as above statement
 
   

}

mysql_fetch_row:
--> it returns array as  it's index number
from table student you fetch record like this:
while($res=mysql_fetch_array($rs)){

 
    echo $res[0];// it can fetch value by index value not table field name
 
   

}



mysql_fetch_object
--> it returns array as  it's as object as table field name
from table student you fetch record like this:
while($res=mysql_fetch_array($rs)){

 
    echo $res->id;//  it can fetch value by object value not table field name or it's                                     //index
 
   

}

I will try to make you understand following  points.

 mysql_fetch_row: Returns row as an enumerated array
 mysql_fetch_object: Returns row as an object
 mysql_fetch_array: Returns row as an associative array

This  is the table details
------------------------------------------------------
ID Name       City
---------------------------------------------
1 belal Chatar
2 Sharma Ranchi
3 chand Bachra
------------------------------------------------------
$res="select * from details";              
$row=mysql_fetch_row($res) // this return enumerated array having value

row{
1
belal
chatra
}
so we can print $row[0],$row[1],$row[2];

in case of mysql_fetch_array() . It return accociative array.
like.
row['id']=1
row['name']="belal";
row['city']="Chatar";

mysql_fetch_array returns the array and you can only access the database fields as array but not by their names, but mysql_fetch_objewct returns the object and you can access the fields by using their names.

Sir, Actually mysqli_fetch_array() and row() in both cases I can use echo $rwo[0] or $row[name] to retrieve data from database, thats why I could not get exactly difference between these.

when we use mysql_fetch_array so in this condition we should pass value through an index or in the associative array through name instead of index. mysql_fetch_row only for a particular row. and mysql_fetch_object means we have to pass a value through object form like ($row = mysql_fetch_array())
$row[0] or $row[id]
if we use object than ($row = mysql_fetch_object())
$row -> id
