difficile vs. dure

Would it be acceptable to say « une question très dure » instead of « très difficile »? If not, what is the difference between dure and difficile?

Bonjour Julia,

Have a look at the above reference  --  you will see that the adjective dure does not really apply to answering a question -- difficile is the most appropriate.

Hope that you find this helpful.

Bonne journée
