First we can see that both technologies have good descriptions already on the web. Since both vary so much, you would not compare one to the other but pick one based on your goals.

You didn't state the goals but maybe this was some academic study but you omitted that detail.

Right now, you must be wondering which is the difference between Web App and Progressive Web App. The difference is that PWA is a “boosted” Web App. Progressive – It must work for all the users, regardless of which browser is used, because the app should be built using progressive enhancement patterns.

Distribution- The app user can easily find the Hybrid app on Play and App store. Whereas, the PWA can be added much easily to the device home screen with the 'Add To Home screen option. However, PWA acquires lower cost due to a single code base and common skill set.

Hybrid App
As per the name, Hybrid apps are a combination of the web app in the native browser, like the UI WebView in iOS and WebView in Android
The responsiveness of the Hybrid app will depend on the website. All the UI component, their positioning, color, and orientation (look and feel) will depend entirely on the responsive layout.
These app will be for a particular dimension set by the web developer.

PWA-Progressive Web App
PWA apps are not the real app but an extension(shortcut) to a website/webpage. They are added to the Homescreen of your mobile device with a browser option of ‘Add To Homescreen‘.
Just like a website, PWA is installed on a server and distributed using URL’s. Although they lack support to few device based features which a native or hybrid app provides. They are like camera-based features and audio recording.

Hybrid App and Progressive Web App

"A hybrid mobile app usually introduces to an application created using a combination of web and native technology that is distributed via the native app store. These apps go through Google, Apple, Microsoft, etc. app store review process.
A Progressive Web App is an application developed using web technology that operates in the browser and may be added to the home screen. They do not require to be distributed via native app stores but can be involved in them. Microsoft includes PWAs in its store as of 2018 and Trusted Web activities make it simple to offer PWAs to the Google Play Store.
Some hybrid mobile app platforms include Appcelerator Titanium, PhoneGap (aka Cordova), and Ionic. You don't require a platform to create a hybrid app, but they are helpful because they've already taken care of making a bridge between JavaScript APIs and native APIs.
Progressive Web Apps easily run in the browser so they can be built with basic CSS, HTML, and JavaScript."
