Принимает ответ "кажется". Как я поняла, в этом примере it appears это видимость чего-то: Со стороны кажется что у нее много друзей, а как оно на самом деле, кто знает. Оказывается это результат, вывод на основе полученной информации: Я был у нее на вечеринке, и, оказывается у нее много друзей.

Appear or seem?
We mostly use appear to talk about facts and events. We use seem to talk about facts, but also to talk about personal feelings and ideas. Seem is often used with a noun:

It seems crazy that we should have to pay twice!
Not: It appears crazy …
It seemed a good choice at the time.
Not: It appeared a good choice …
Тоже хотела так перевести, но словари http://www.lingvo-online.ru/ru/Phrases/en-ru/it%20appears и https://translate.google.com/#en/ru/It%20appears подсказывают, что здесь речь идет о "видимости", а не о "факте".
