Neutral provides return/ balancing path for the phase
currents and completes the circuit. Neutral can also be
Earthed at source end as per system requirement.
Earth refers to system at mother earth potential, essential
for human sefety.
Ground refers to virtual earth system in Electronic
circuitries in appliances as also Aircrafts/ Automobiles,

Answer / ajit
Neutral is used to close the ckt. with phase voltage and earthing is used to collect leakage voltage from the body and release it to the ground for human safety.
