Which is more impressive: an undergraduate degree or a graduate degree from a competitive school ?
If the person getting the graduate degree got their undergraduate degree from a school that was easy to get into

There is no simple answer to this. Graduate school is generally less competitive than undergraduate but there may be other factors at work such as a need to attend an in-state university for financial reasons.
If you have an undergraduate degree from a poorly ranked university, being able to get from there into a top ranked graduate school to study a serious subject is far more impressive than the other way around.
