Hi Mainak,
With advertising, the shortcut(s) is/are installed to the start menu and the app is registered in the system, but the actual installation is taking place when the user launches this shortcut for the first time.
With install on demand (publishing), an entry is created in 'Add new programs' where the user has the option to install it.
Regards, Nick

Not really,

I would say that if you advertise an MSI all entrypoints will be registered/installed such (advertised) shortcuts, file associations, com components and alike. When any of these entrypoints are called the install on-demand will come in play and repair (install) the feature(s) where the entrypoint is located and features above. This means that featuers will be installed on-demand; when they are called for use.

Hi AngelD

Yes

Advertisement will create the entry points
When the package is advertised the existing entrypoints in the MSI will be installed/registered on the client.
(So you could put it in that way)

and will prepare for installation on demand.
Yes
