    Re: what difference between both sentences.

    Hi,
    ***I am NOT teacher. ***
    I think there is no difference between them but the first one should be " The question seems easy to me/somebody ", and the second one is correct.

    Re: what difference between both sentences.

    'The child seems healthy, but the doctor is concerned.'
    'This seems nice.'
    Both are quoted from http://www.thefreedictionary.com/seem
    So I think it is correct without 'to me/somebody'.

    Not a teacher.

    What is the difference? ? Use only a single question mark.

    Please note my corrections to your post. Start every new sentence with a capital letter and always capitalise 'I'.

    There's no difference in the meanings of your sentences.
