    hard, difficult, complicated

    Could you please specify the difference between these synonyms (hard, difficult, complicated) and the context where they should be used? If possible could you please produce some examples?
    Thank you)

    Re: hard, difficult, complicated

    I think a good (online or paper) dictionary would be able to answer this question for you! Just be sure to find one with multiple definitions and sample sentences.

    If you still have questions after you've consulted the dictionary, write back with more specific context and information and I'm sure someone will be able to help!

    After you've done the research, please feel welcome to send a list of sentences in which you've used the words, and we'll comment on whether they are appropriate.
    Open ended question requesting the differential use of similar words in all contexts are simply not answerable.
