comment Nuance: Using the negated adjective versus using the opposite adjective
BTW, as you can see by my [時間]{じ・かん} here and above, this site has a built-in furigana engine. This will be helpful to you if you don't know a lot of kanji yet. Check the Help page for more info on that.

comment Nuance: Using the negated adjective versus using the opposite adjective
Yes, those are the particles は and も. You use むずかしくはない when you're contrasting the negativity to something else. むずかしくない is just a neutral negation. I'm sure there's at least one topic on this site about the differences in when to add it and when not to, but I can't find it right now.
