a)There appears to be some flaw in the argument. - SUBJECT: Flaw VERB: Appears
b)There are ten people in this room. SUBJECT: People VERB: Are

"there" is placeholder here. With "there" the subject comes after the verb. The subject decides what verb would be followed after "there".

Hope this helps!
