Best answer
NPDA(Non Deterministic Push Down Automata) is more powerful than DPDA(Deterministic Push Down Automata).

for eg: There are languages for which we can make NPDA but DPDA can not be possible...

L = { WW^r   | W belongs to (a + b)^(+) }

expressive power of DPDA < expressive power of NPDA

ie. language accpeted by deterministic PDA is greater then Non deterministic PDA

therefore NPDA is more powerful then DPDA
