Think of Evolution as the overall idea that species morph and advance over time.

Consider Natural Selection as one of the possible mechanics of this evolution: the way in which traits are eliminated and passed on the basis of which are most suited to survive in any given eco-system.

Natural selection is when the organisms better adapted survive due to their adaptations and pass on their advantageous genes. Evolution is the change in species over time. So natural selection causes evolution.

Natural selection is a change that is favourable, so a favourable allele is passed on down generations, as the parents are more likely to survive with it, so reproduce more

Evolution is just the theory that every living organism today originated from a common ancestor, changes due to selection pressure, and isolation.

That's what I think anyway
