I cannot tell the difference between 'subdued' and 'moderate'.
I saw 2 sentences:
Experiment A produces subdued response.
Eperiment A produces moderate response.
Are there any difference? Could you explain about that?

Yes, there is a difference.
"Subdued" gives the idea of very little, restrained, or less than expected.
"Moderate" gives the idea of average, or something that is not large and not small.
