How are pulses different from lentils and legumes? Please explain.

A legume is a plant in the family Fabaceae, or the seed of such a plant. Legumes are grown agriculturally, primarily for human consumption, for livestock forage and silage, and as soil-enhancing green manure.
Lentils are legumes that are shaped like a lens (wide in the middle and narrowed at the ends). Beans on the other hand are larger. ... A pulse is a dry legume that grows in a pod of one to 12 seeds. It includes beans, lentils, peas and other little seeds I commonly (but incorrectly) refer to as lentils or beans
Pulses are the edible seeds of plants in the legume family. .
