okay i hope you are okay brother am not an expect but let atleast try to solve the case
what you need to know is meaning of both 1.mineral and rocks
their differences and similarities as well as their classification based on each and everythings such as how they are formed and how they look
rocks are natural inorganic {not living matter} materials that are found mainly on eath crust 
well for now that is what i know next week i will finish it better

Well helw am rock is a hard part found in the earth crust ...
mineral is what is obtain from those rocks..
Based on mode of classification
..there are igneous rocks,sedimentary,metamorphic rocks
igneous are formed due to solidification of magma in the earths crust
sedimentary rocks are formed due to igneous rocks undergo weathering process .also it is formed due to accumulation of sediments
metamorphic rock formed due to certain type of rock undergo metamorphism process(high pressure and heat)....
That's all plz consult geograph msabila comprehensive u Wil learn mor

Hello emmanuel, miss you bro...
Let's me help you guys according to geology and simple definition....
All of definition you mentioned are just properties of minerals and rocks...
But simple definitions are, A mineral is a naturally occurring chemical compound,A mineral is different from a rock, which can be an aggregate of minerals or non-minerals and does not have one specific chemical composition, as a mineral does.

hopefully you understand but in simple manner if I add to elements will form compound which is a mineral while if I add two minerals will form an rock....
Sample of mineral are like quartz, which is compound of silica and oxygen, while quartz,micas and other minerals combined form a rock called granite....
So it is a nice and wide subject
You are all welcome
