In the Paleolithic period, people survived by hunting and gathering only; in the Neolithic period people began to practice agriculture. Stone tools became more sophisticated in their design.

The mesolithic period was between the paleolithic and neolithic.

it was worse in the Paleolithic time period.

Paleolithic refers to the Old Stone Age period of time, whereas neolithic refers to the New Stone Age period of time, which came afterwards.

The biggest difference between the two periods was that the Neolithic period saw the advent of tools and implements; the first developments of technology. Paleolithic peoples did not use tools of any kind.

No. The Paleolithic Period is part of the Stone Age. The Stone Age also includes the Mesolithic Period and the Neolithic Period.
