What’s difference between ‘hardly’ and ‘rarely’?
To the questions like, “How often do you go clothes shopping?”
Should I answer as,”Rarely” or “Hardly”?

Answer

Hardly has a nuance of being difficult to do.

Rarely has a nuance of very isolated occurrences in time.

Seldom is possibly closer to what you want to convey in this sentence.
