Is there one word for "hiding an obvious fact". For e.g.
I will not be __ about the fact that this task is difficult.
Some words that come to my mind are "deny" or "pretend", but they don't necessarily imply that there is something obvious about the thing being denied.
I will not deny the fact that this task is difficult (doesn't imply that the task is obviously difficult)
Another example -
She kept mum about her affair with him, but it was obvious to everyone.
She was __ about her affair with him.
