    Apparently

    Hello All,

    is the sentence mentioned below is right:

    1) People are discussing three cars and a guy standing in the corner says Apparently I have all three of them.

    2) Please let me know the difference between subsequently and consequently

    Kind Regards

    Re: Apparently

    Please ask different questions in separate threads. This helps to avoid confusion.

    This is very unlikely. The meaning of his words is, "It appears/seems that I have all three of them." I suppose it's possible, but normally someone would know if they had three cars.

    2) Please let me know the difference between subsequently and consequently
    subsequently = following this
    consequently = following, and as a result of, this
