Correct spelling, explanation: the root word for apparent in English is the verb to appear, from Latin apparere. The confusion with the mistake
apparant may rise especially among French users because, in spite of the Latin form, the French form is spelled with a instead of e. However, in English we use Latin root, therefore apparent is the correct spelling.
Definition of apparent:
adjective, clearly understood
It is becoming apparent, that she is not good for this job.
There are no apparent reasons for you to hold him back from this project.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is a mistake because Latin origin apparere is spelled with e instead of a, so
