I would like to know how to show Appendices' name in LOF if they contain figures.

        \caption{Comparative table 4}
    \end{figure}

    \end{appendices}
    % end appendices

    \end{document}

Now, LOF is displayed like this:

LOF

Notice the piece of code to show Chapters' name in LOF if they contain figures, and the piece of code to make appendices' sections look like chapters and subsections like sections in the body of the document.

A little modification has to be done; I used a boolean switch appendices initially set to false; if the switch is false, then the information of the chapters is added to the LoF; if the switch is true, the information of the modified section is included in the LoF; to have easy access to the titles, I also used the explicit option for titlesec:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{report}
\usepackage[english]{babel}     % english language
\usepackage{graphicx}           % images in the document
\usepackage{float}              % containers
\usepackage{wrapfig}            % wrap text around figure
\usepackage{subfig}             % some images in a environment

\usepackage{appendix}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}
\usepackage{chngcntr}

% code to put chapter name in LOF (hyperref must be loaded after it)
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter
% initial definitions of the chapter info (name and number)
\def\thischaptertitle{}\def\thischapternumber{}
\newtoggle{noFigs}
\newbool{appendices}
\setbool{appendices}{false}
\apptocmd{\@chapter}%
  {\gdef\thischaptertitle{#1}\gdef\thischapternumber{\thechapter}%
    \global\toggletrue{noFigs}}{}{}

% the figure environment does the job: the first time it is used after a \chapter                         command it writes the information of the chapter to the LoF
\AtBeginDocument{%
  \AtBeginEnvironment{figure}{%
    \iftoggle{noFigs}{
      \ifbool{appendices}
       {\addtocontents{lof}{\protect\contentsline {chapter}%
         {\protect\numberline {\thissectionnumber} {\thissectiontitle}}{}{} }}
       {\addtocontents{lof}{\protect\contentsline {chapter}%
          {\protect\numberline {\thischapternumber} {\thischaptertitle}}{}{} }}
      \global\togglefalse{noFigs}
    }{}
  }%
}
