Synonyms of "Multiple" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between multiple and complex and complicated ?
A: Multiple means many, more than 2 or 3 things

Complex and complicated can mean the same thing: 復雜 - and can used in different contexts.
But, “complex” is the opposite of “simple” whereas “complicated” means difficult

For example:

“How’s your relationship going?” (Meaning a romantic relationship)

“It’s complicated...”
(This means that things aren’t going very well, and the current situation is difficult)

We would never say “it’s complex” because “it’s complicated” is a set phrase.


But these words can also be used in the same context.

“Wow, that puzzle 🧩 is so complicated/complex.”
Here, saying “complicated” means that it’s difficult and has multiple or many parts. Saying “complex” here means that the puzzle has many parts but isn’t necessarily difficult.
