Synonyms of "Mysterious" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between mysterious and mystifying ?
A:

It's a very good question.

Usually, we say that something is mysterious if we don't understand it and there seems to be some kind of story behind it. For instance, we might say that the new office worker is mysterious because he doesn't talk very much. But we assume that there is some kind of story which would tell us more about this person.

But if something is mystifying, we are saying that we simply cannot comprehend it at all, and we are having difficulty knowing how to deal with it. For instance, I find these New contracts mystifying – they don't make any sense to me at all. Here, I am saying that I do not know how to proceed. I am stuck.
Q: What is the difference between mysterious and mystical ?
A: mysterious 是神秘 mystical 是很稀有或者像传说中的东西。
That person is mysterious as they always wear black clothing that covers the body.
That looks like the mystical beast from legends.
Q: What is the difference between mysterious and mystical ?
A: mystical is a word you would use to describe something that is fascinating. It is also used when talking about religion, you could say “a goddess has mystical powers.” mysterious means something is not understood, you could say “the disappearance of the lady is really mysterious
Q: What is the difference between mysterious and cryptic ?
A: It's quite hard for me to define 'Mysterious' as it's surprisingly quite a broad term for things. For example: 'A mysterious man walked down the dark street' or 'We walked into a mysterious forest'.

While Cryptic is usually used more when something has a hidden/ unrecognizable meaning. For example: 'This book contains a cryptic message'.
Q: What is the difference between mysterious and inscrutable ?
A: This is somewhat tricky. Both words mean something that is impossible to understand.

However, I think mysterious is the better word because it is more versatile. Even though I know what inscrutable means I don't believe I've ever used it in a sentence. Mysterious could used to describe a person or a place, a taste, perhaps just a feeling. I would use inscrutable to describe a problem I didn't get, like a difficult maths equation.

In English there are connotations and denotations. These words have almost the same denotation but the connotations are different. Which really just means their usage is different.

Example sentences:

The professor gave us a rather inscrutable problem for homework.

She had an inscrutable expression on her face when I asked her out.

The guy who sits quietly in the back of the class is mysterious.

This deserted town has a mysterious aura to it.

He was a mysterious man, although he was our close friend, he never revealed much about himself or his private life.
