Please look at the following question.

"The software publisher are creating programs that are _____too complex for the majority of users"
A)well B) pretty C) quite D) far

The correct answer is D)far. I've got right. Because I've all the time seen only "far too". I have never seen the other adverbs combined with "too".

Q1] Except for the fact that I have never seen the other adverbs with "too", I couldn't put out a proper reason. Couldn't someone explain it to me?
Q2] In fact, I think the questioner should write like the below.
"The software publisher are creating programs that are too far complex for the majority of users".
Can't I write like that?
Here is a sentence with "too far".

" It is too far to walk'.

It doesn't matter either "too far" or "far too",does it?

Thank you for your answer in advance.

There are two meanings for "far". Don't confuse one for the other. The placement of the word "far" will help you to determine which meaning is intended.

far too complex ~ much too complex (Here "far" intensifies the meaning of "too".)
too far to walk ~ too distant to walk.

Therefore it matters a great deal whether you say "far too" or "too far". Never substitute one for the other.

You can use both in one sentence: It is far too far to reach by midnight. ~ It is much too distant to reach by midnight.

Son JamesIt doesn't matter either "too far" or "far too",does it?
Yes, it does. " far too" meaning beyond one's ability to cope with or limitation.
