What is the major difference an NPN transistor and a PNP transistor?

The NPN transistor has its conduction curve where the base is

more positive than the emitter, while the collector is also more

positive than the emitter.

The PNP transistor is exactly opposite, with its conduction

curve where the base is less positive than the emitter, while the

collector is also less positive than the emitter.
