    Wink Question

    What is the difference between "appear" and "seem"?
    Considering the following two sentences:
    There seems to be no alternative.
    There apears to be no altenative.

    Are they the same or slightly different?

    They seem to be interchangeable to me, but appearance can be deceptive
