English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. conspicuous

    That is apparent which clearly appears to the senses or to the mind as soon as the attention is directed toward it; that is evident of which the mind is made sure by some inference that supplements the facts of perception; the marks of a struggle were apparent in broken shrubbery and trampled ground, and the finding of a mutilated body and a rifled purse made it evident that robbery and murder had been committed.

That is obvious which is directly in the way so that it can not be missed; as, the application of the remark was obvious.
