what's the difference between affirm and confirm?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jm_lewis

I think of "confirm" as a response to a question, theory, etc. "He confirmed my suspicions." Affirm indicates more of a statement and is less commonly used.

affirm = to testify, to swear to, to declare and confirm = to verify, to establish as true. Sometimes pretty much the same, sometimes not.

Seems like confirm would be more applicable here.
