i will make an attempt to make it simple.
there are many complex investment options like

Mutual Fund are mutually collected funds from the investors, collected with a general motive of getting profit out of the money. These money is taken care by fund managers and his tem from a asset management company and invested in various investment instruments like shares , govt. and corporate bonds, derivatives etc. There are many good performing mutual funds ie.
