Below is the recommendation and reference answer for question "What is the meaning of Apparently and Ironic ?" It was collected and sorted by the editor of this site but not sure the answer is entirely accurate.
Apparently is an adjective meaning "evidently" or "obviously." After his sixth hot dog, you might say to your friend, "Well! Apparently somebody was hungry!"
While apparently can mean "plainly" — like, duh — it can also mean "seemingly," which is almost "evidently" or "obviously," but not quite. There's a certain amount of guessing involved, based on appearances. The park ranger who shows up in the morning to examine the path of destruction through your campsite might say that it was "apparently the work of a hungry bear," not because he's totally sure, but because it definitely looks like something the bears around here would do.
"Irrigation often produces bumper crops from apparently desert land"
"That man may be apparently friendly, yet malicious in heart."
Apparently means, "as far as one knows or can see." ( "seemingly, evidently, it seems (that), it would seem (that), it appears (that), it would appear (that), as far as one knows, by all accounts, so it seems".) The best way to use this is when we use "It seems" use 'apparently' in place of 'it seems'!
Apparently is an adverb.
Apparent is an adjective.
E.g: Apparently, they only allow women in the ladies' restroom because only women go in there.
IRONIC : using or characterized by irony.
"his mouth curved into an ironic smile"
