Hi. Could you answer the question? Hi. Do you know in what situations we use the word ''customer" and when ''client"? Could you explain it by examples?

Client is used in a more professional situation, such as social services.  Customer is used in a retail situation, like an appliance store.

They're mostly interchangeable. In a business setting, the client would mostly refer to an individual, while the customer would (in my experience) refer to the company. For example: 

Today I spoke with the client, and we decided we would proceed as planned.

We visited the customer's main factory today and I met with Steve John and Allan.

It's mostly about what feels right, neither is incorrect and they are commonly swapped about to the speakers preference.
