Synonyms: hard, difficult, arduous
These adjectives mean requiring great physical or mental effort to do, achieve, or master. Hard is the most general term: "You write with ease to show your breeding,/But easy writing's curst hard reading" Richard Brinsley Sheridan.
Difficult and hard are interchangeable in many instances. Difficult, however, is often preferable where the need for skill or ingenuity is implied: "All poetry is difficult to read,/
The sense of it is, anyhow" Robert Browning.
Arduous applies to burdensome labor or sustained physical or spiritual effort: "knowledge at which [Isaac] Newton arrived through arduous and circuitous paths" Thomas Macaulay.

Difficult is describing the ability to understand a certain thing, such as this homework assignment is difficult,
But "Hard", in the order hand, is more commonly use in physical properties, such as the fruit is hard or rough.

difficult 是有難度的 比如說 It is difficult for me to drive a truck.
hard呢 也可以說是難 都可以用但hard這個字有另一個意識 就是“硬"
It is hard for me to drive a truck.
That rock is very hard for me to break it.
還有 difficult是不能有像hard = harder -----hardest
difficult 就是difficult 不然就有difficulties
