What's the difference between a Call and Put option?

A Call Option gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation to buy the underlying security at the exercise price, at or within a specified time.

A Put Option gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation to sell the underlying security at the exercise price, at or within a specified time.
