What is the definition of "apparently"? Could someone gives me some sentence using the word "apparently" so that I can have a better idea?

I think the best way to use this is when we use "It seems" use 'apparently' in place of 'it seems'!

My mom had asked me to take out the trash, but apparently someone had already done it for me when I got there.

Apparently, my father had take it out for me.

Apparently, they only allow women in the ladies' restroom because only women go in there.

Hi,
My mom had asked me to take out the trash, but apparently someone had already done it for me when I got there. This suggests that the trash seemed to be out, but you were not sure if it was out.

Apparently, my father had take it out for me. This sentence suggests that the trash was out, but you were not sure if it was your father who put it out.

'Apparently' refers to a situation in which things seem, things are perceived.

The above examples are OK, but consider one like this.

Apparently he is a friendly and kind man, but actually he is a serial killer.

Best wishes, Clive

Hi,

apparently is something which is done deliberatly

This is not correct. The word is not related to deliberation.

Best wishes, Clive

I hate the word apparently. It implies to the person who asked the question that something should be clearly perceived by them that may not be.
example:

Did someone take out he trash?

I think that the appropriate response would be direct like the following:

Yes. Dad took out the trash.

Not like this:

Apparently, dad took out the garbage. (This implies that it was evident to the person asking the question and they asked the question anyway.)
agreed...

Hi,

Many words can be used sarcastically. Not just 'apparently'.
