    Can someone tell me...

    Probably yes, an internet search with Google can tell you. We can't tell you without more info on your problem. Depending on the problem, one might be better. Better for what specific case?

    M4a/ aac has a better sound quality than mp3 & for small bit rate takes up much less space.

    Simply to say it is better with quality than mp3 but most of the people go for mp3 rather than M4A. It also occupies less space compare to mp3.

    depends a lot on bit rate. it also depends on where u want to hear the music, if it is from big speakers or from your phone

    Also, there's little real info on whether M4A actually sounds better or if the difference is usually too small to notice. It was (apparently) first created with the goal of better sound and somewhat smaller size, but no one seems sure how well it has succeeded.

    One thing that is known is that MP3 has significantly wider usage. If "better" includes "more people can play it", then MP3 is "better" than M4A.

    Without knowing the context of the question, it can't be clearly answered. Better for what?
