Hi

Clone is analogous to Pass By Reference while DeepClone is analogous to Pass By Value.
In memory level clone copy the reference and deepclone does not copy the reference .
When you are cloning, just a pointer is being created to the already existing record/collection. Any changes that you do on Clone are applied on Original too and vice-versa (actually the record/collection is just 1 while the pointers are 2).
In DeepClone, an exact replica of the record/collection is being created somewhere else in memory, changes to the deepClone or the original are independent of each other and would not reflect on the other.
