Correct spelling, explanation: easier is the correct form as it is a comparative adjective of easy. According to the rule, y becomes i in a word in which at the end there is a consonant and y. There is s before y in easy, therefore the correct form after adding the suffix is easier.
Easyer is incorrect because there is a consonant before y.

Incorrect spelling, explanation:
easyer is a mistake and easier is the correct form because when adding the suffix, y at the end of the word remains only if it is preceded by a vowel. In the case of easy, y is preceded by s, therefore a consonant, so y transforms to i. Thus easier is the correct spelling.
