    Informally speaking.

    1) Data loss is like complete data loss, like if you lit your (paper) bank statements on fire. The same is for computers, data loss is when data can no longer be retrieved by any means. Data lost is money lost. Data corruption on the other hand is when data is simply corrupted, like if you were to shred your (paper) bank statements. Although they are shredded and the text is corrupted. They may still be readable with some effort.

    2) Simply put, centralized networks are in one location, and distributed network configurations assume more than one location.

    3) Routers in layman's terms are like the gateway to the internet. They foreward information and route it. Hubs bring several network devices into one network. Many routers have network hubs built into them these days (those 4 ethernet ports instead of 1). Bridges are used to bridge network devices, like several devices bridged into one network.

    If that didn't help, I hope it did, but if it didn't...some simply searching might reveal much more detail in the EXACT differences.
