A: Inconspicuous is the more complex synonym for obvious. Any adult native speaker will most likely know it, but children might not. Conspicuous also has a more negative sound to it. You might say “that shady car is parked conspicuously.” With obvious, you might say, “That car is very obvious with it’s bright paint job.” In these situations they both mean the car is very visible and easy to notice, but the word choice fits the sentences.
