Correct spelling, explanation: the word apparent comes from late Middle English, from Old French aparant, from Latin apparent – appearing, from the verb apparere. As you can see, its modern construction resembles the Latin version – this adjective should be spelled with a double -p letter. It’s also related to the following words: appearance, appear.
Aparent is just a misspelling.

Incorrect spelling, explanation: the word
aparent is not correct, because this version lacks the second -p letter. You need to know that it should be spelled as apparent – with the double -p. Many adjectives and verbs in English are built in a similar way. This mistake may come from plain carelessness. Try to remember that apparent is the only correct form and aparent is not.
