Default Difference between MHC I & MHC II and when they are used???

Hey guys
Need your help in understanding what's the difference betwen MHC I and MHC II and when and how are they used or activated.

What are the scenarios when both of them are activated?
I looked through KAPLAN and FA can't seem to come up with a concept and always end up getting related Questions on UWORLD wrong

Thanks in advance!
My exam is in 2 weeks!
