Dear Neha,

Kindly go through my blog post on the topic. It has examples and the simple terms to understand Instances.

It's a counter that gets incremented every time data is received by Adobe Analytics.

Hits.

More correctly, hits where values had been set.

 

Then:

"Occurrences" = hits where values had been set or had been set previously and are still persisting.
