Apparently has 3 definitions. It is a strange words. But the three definitions are:
used to say you have read or been told something although you are not certain it is true. Examples: °Apparently it's going to rain today. °Apparently he's had enough of England and is going back to Australia.
used when the real situation is different from what you thought it was: °You know I told you Alice's party was on the 13th? Well I saw her last night and apparently it's on the 14th. °She looks about ten, but apparently she's 14. I thought they were married but apparently not (= they are not married).
used to say that something seems to be true, although it is not certain: °An 80-year-old woman was badly hurt in what the police describe as an apparently motiveless attack (= an attack for no apparent reason).
