the appearance of one mutant

< Previous | Next >


— Well, suppose I am a mutant? How can the appearance of one mutant send you into a panic?
Planet of the Apes, film

Am I correct that depending on context "appearance" here can mean the way he looks, or the action of his appearing?
Thank you.

    Yes - context and logic will help you decide:) He may look so horrible it sends you into a panic or there may be more mutants that threaten civilization as we know it :D
