How about adding a little more reference to your question? Are we talking about databases here?

In context of DBMS, primary key is a column in a table that uniquely identifies the rows of that table.Several rows of a table can have similar value for a column but in case if that column is a primary key for that table, it can't be same.
In addition to uniquely identifying a row, it also ensures that there cannot be any null value in that column(if it is the primary key for that table)
A simple example:
upload_2017-7-11_16-13-27
Here Roll No. column is the primary key of this table so values in that column cannot be same,but name and marks can have similar values.
