Китайский - это сложный язык. Why is this wrong?

It isn't wrong - report it.

Still marked as wrong, reported it.

It's not accepted yet, I also reported it

Still no change 9 months later, so I'm reporting it again, most probably to no avail though…

Is there any difference in usage between сложный and трудный?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/i.algurabi

сложный - difficult in its complexity

трудный - difficult in its achievement

"сложный" = "трудный" in the sense of difficulty.
"сложный" is also "consisting of many parts", "compound".

"сложный" = "трудный" in the sense of complexity. You cannot use this word to describe physical difficulty.

Сдожный = complicated, or difficult

Talk about throwing stones from a glass house.

so "трудный" should be accepted, more like 'hard' ?

Oh so here "это" is wrong now? This whole "education" module is a dumpster fire of false rejections.

It is not, I have added it.

Based on previous models, I too don't understand why inclusion of это is wrong here.
