There are at least two usages of "trivial". One is to describe answers, and the other is to describe questions/tasks.

Answers: A trivial answer is something which is either immediately self-evident or which conveys no information.

Questions/Tasks: A trivial question can perhaps be defined as something for which either the answer or the method of finding the answer is known by the person asked the question.
Answers: When asked to describe yourself, a nontrivial answer would be, "My name is Joe Schmoe. I'm 5'10" and weigh 170 lbs." A trivial answer would be, "I'm a human. I know English."

Questions/Tasks: In mathematics, computing the values of integrals is a trivial task, (even though it can be hard), because the methods for computing integrals are known.

Trivialities are all the not very important things in life that we are put through to question in our life. But when it all comes down to it, they don't really matter.
Who cares a hundred years from now? Who'll remember all the players? Who'll remember all the clowns? What are you going to do and what does this life really mean? Well, when it all comes down..we're just cycling trivialities.

Trivial Matters: Things in life that have almost no value. A lot of people care too much about these things and some use these matters against others to boost their self esteem.
Mary: Karla misspelled you're on Facebook. That means she is stupid and I am better than her.
Amy: You should not judge people on trivial matters. She is probably very smart in her own way and that could have been a typo. It's Facebook! Chill out and stop caring about stupid stuff.
