asking about the word Quite when we say i am quite sure it means competley sure; however, when we say quite expensive, do we mean very expensive or moderately expensive? how about " quite hot out there"? is it very hot or moderately hot?

Quite can mean to the highest extent. (As in your example, "quite sure".) It can also mean to a certain degree. (Ex. quite hot)
