Let me help you: When fracture the bone the pieces either sty in place or move out place. When the pieces move out we called displace fracture.

Displaced: In a non displaced fracture, x rays show a line going through the bone, but the fracture is lined up--meaning the length and position of the entire bone is unchanged - - a displacement is just the opposite. Bones and fracture fragments are not lined up, usually requiring surgery.
