Normally, it is simple. But it is not always easy :)

Duo is fussy, although simple seems the obvious choice for simple :) and easy = facil

I agree that the obvious choice for simple is simple :), but I just assumed I could also use easy... :)

I used easy for one of the translations regarding "simple" and it marked me as correct, but not for this specific translation. If I had been marked off the first time, I would have known for this one.

ESTES VS ES??

Try and use the verb 'ser' (where 'es' is conjugated from) when describing the characteristics of something.

Something can be simple without being easy (a puzzle, for example, that requires you to think outside the box.) I dont think "Occam's Razor" would be a phrase if the two words were truly interchangeable.

Could you explain what occam's razor is?

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/SqueezeboxSarah

The most common modern use of Occam's Razor is the phrase "The simplest answer is usually the correct one." A more scientific, and more Sherlockian, phrase might be, "when you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better."

It's alright from a grammatical standpoint, but not preferable. When translating, I'd recommend to stay as close to the original sentence as possible.

As far as I understand both English and Spanish grammar, it does not belong there.

While not necessarily required, a comma after an introductory adverb is quite common and acceptable.

Something can be easy without being simple, and something can definitely be simple without being easy.

In an earlier question normalmente was translated as 'of course'. Why is that not right in this case?

Simple and easy mean the same thing!

1 year ago

https://www.duolingo.com/SqueezeboxSarah

They do not. Something can be simple without being easy. A puzzle or a riddle can have a simple answer, but that doesn't mean it's easy to solve. And some things can be easy for certain people to learn to do - playing the guitar or learning a language or cracking safes, for example - but not be simple things at all.

Being caught in an abusive relationship has a simple solution - leave the abuser - but it is almost never an easy thing to do.

I respect your precision in usage. However colloquially the words are often used interchangeably . I think Duolingo should allow leeway for conversational vocabulary.

There is no need to beg around for lingots, I assure you. Work through your language tree like normal and you will get more lingots than you could ever use.
