Open circuit have infinite resistance while short circuit has zero resistance

In open circuit there is no flow of current but there will be a voltage. In close circuit there will be  flow of current but there is no Voltage.

In open circuit doesn't have any return path.

 In short circuit having a return path.

In open circuit the resistance will be very high but in short circuit the resistance will be low.

Open circuit means the wire is cut meaning power will not flow and close circuit means wire is not cut and hence power will flow.Short circuit is the same as close circuit
