    SYNONYMS  easy, simple, facile, effortless. These adjectives mean requiring little effort or posing little if any difficulty. Easy applies to tasks that require little effort: “The diagnosis of disease is often easy, often difficult, and often impossible” (Peter M. Latham). Simple implies a lack of complexity that facilitates understanding or performance: “the faculty … of reducing his thought on any subject to the simplest and plainest terms possible” (Baron Charnwood). Facile stresses readiness and fluency: a facile speaker. Often, though, the word implies glibness or insincerity, superficiality, or lack of care: an explanation too facile for complex events. Effortless refers to performance in which the application of great strength or skill makes the execution seem easy: wrote effortless prose.
