It is very hard to figure out what you want to achieve here. Here are a 
few thoughts:

Let's start with a list where we can tell what we are plotting:

L = {{1, 2, 3}, {10, 20, 30}, {100, 200, 300}};

This will plot the second sublist:


Here is a function that will plot the n'th sublist:

fun[n_] := ListPlot[L[[n]]]



Note that in your code FunRes[t] evaluates a function, so it makes 
absolutely no sense to use AppendTo on the result!

Tell us what you really want to do, and someone will tell you how to do it!

BTW, it is highly recommended that you don't use variable names that 
start with a capital letter (unless you use a special character further 
in the name) to avoid confusion with Mathematica's symbols.
