Comparison of these two seems little starnge to me - stored procedure is a subroutine available to applications accessing a relational database system. In other words, when you talk about "Stored procs' you are imlicitly talking about relational databases , such as DB2. While Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is a "protocol" that one program can use to request a service from a program located in another computer.
May be if you share the origin of this question, some one around can come up with better answer.
