What is the difference between 'class' and 'instance'?

I'm creating table in CUBRID Manager, I'm confused because I have to choose beetwen 'class' and 'instance' column type. What is difference beetwen these two? I can't find anything about this in documentation.

Class in CUBRID is the same as table. You can think of them as aliases. The same goes with instance which is the same as row. There is one more term called attributes which is the same as columns.

Class, instance and attribute are used in Object database world, while table, row and columns are used in relational database world.
