Hi @ashu65

Train dataset: This file is used to train the machine learning models. In this dataset, you will have the features (independent variables) and target (dependent variable) . Considering the loan prediction dataset, you will have features such as Gender, Age, Income, etc and the target is to predict loan status.

Test dataset: This file has only the features, and you have to predict the target variable. The model built on the train dataset will be used to predict the target variable on the test set. In the Loan prediction problem, you will have to use the model to predict the Loan status for the data points present in the test set.
