Tell me the difference between allusion and illusion.
See how Brian Cleary explains the difference:

ALLUSION vs. ILLUSION? An allusion is a (usually indirect) reference to something; It’s like a hint or suggestion. An illusion is a false impression or idea, in which one attributes reality to something unreal. Examples: In an ALLUSION to her career as a dancer, she named her cat Baryshnikov. It is only an ILLUSION that the stock market is recovering.
