My answer to this question wash easygoing,because I don’t think that very user-friendly,I think it should be ‘friendly-user’ so I selected easygoing,which is incorrect?Why is this so?

It is so because your understanding is incorrect. The adjective is indeed ‘user-friendly’, meaning ‘easy to use’.

I encountered “user-friendly” for topics on software and computers. It means “easy for the users”-- that’s why it’s friendly to users.

Easy going is a personality. These people are calm, without worry or concern. But this can be a negative attitude because they tend to be lax, careless, undisciplined.
