    Question: I am asking about what are the differences and similarities between (conjunction, connective, and conjunctive).

    Answer:
    I will assume you want to know how to use these words in order to talk about English grammar, but you can use them in other ways as well.

    A conjunction is one of the eight parts of English speech. We use it when we want to join two ideas together.

    A connective is a word or group of words that we use like a conjunction but which might actually be another part of speech.

    (Please note that the words conjunction and connective are nouns themselves that is, they are the name of something.)

    Conjunctive is a adjective. It is used to show that the noun it modifies
    is being used as a conjunction.

    All three words are similar to each other in the sense that they relate
    to the joining of two or more separate ideas.

    Any dictionary will give you definitions of how these words are used
    im everyday language.

    if you need further explanation or examples I'll be glad to help you.
