    Hi,

    Can I say a baffled man instead of a confused man?

    Hello ieasy

    A baffled man stands in front of a door which his key no longer opens.

    A confused man stands in front of two doors and doesn't know which door he should attempt to open.

    All the best,

    MrP

    It's because the verb to baffle is shown as a synonym of to confuse in the dictionary. Thanks a lot.
