I know we can set the following value to the android:gravity and  android:layout_gravity.

center_horizontal, etc.
But I am confused regarding both of these.

What is the difference between the usage of android:gravity and android:layout_gravity?

Their names should help you:

android:gravity sets the gravity of the content of the View its used on.

android:layout_gravity sets the gravity of the View or Layout in its parent.
