I was reading the meaning of the word apparent. I found that the word has two completely opposite meanings, 1. Easy to recognize that something is true. 2. Something seems to be true but might not be.
Now, how do I decide which meaning fits in which sentence. E.g. consider these sentences,
- The sun is apparently yellow.
- It is apparent that the sun is yellow.
Does this sentence mean that it is easy to recognize that sun is yellow, or does it mean that the sun seems to be yellow but it isn't yellow actually.
