Its a healthy revision for me,so thanks for the question firstly.

Simple - Eating apples quickly. - Eating is more like a verb.
Complex - The quick Eating of apples. - More of a noun/subject like.

Uses -
I enjoyed drinking the water and the wine tasting. - Drinking - Simple; Wine tasting - COmplex.

I enjoyed drinking the water and tasting the wine - drinking and tasting - both simple.

Lesson learnt - Simple and Complex gerunds are never parallel.

I believe this will help.
