i want to have a comprehensive answer to difference between RSA algorithm and shor's algorithm. Can i say Shor's algorithm makes use of quantum algorithm while RSA uses classical?

    While Shor's algorithm is a quantum algorithm, I'd hardly say that qualifies as a comprehensive difference between Shor and RSA.

Shor's algorithm solves a very different problem than RSA. There is pretty much no relation between them other then Shor's algorithm breaks security of RSA. It is like asking the difference between a car and cooking. The question does not make much sense.
