    confirm that ~?

    1) Police have confirmed that they are questioning a woman about the disappearance of Kelly.

    Does it mean that Police have known they(=not police) are questioning a woman~?

    or

    have police made people have know the fact that they (=police) are questioning a woman~ ?

    which is correct?


    2) The doctor may run a test to confirm that you are pregnant.

    How about this sentence?

    Re: confirm that ~?

    1) The police announces publicly that the information (or a rumor) about a suspect who has been being questioned by them is true.

    2)a test to be sure that she is pregnant

    Hi atssarbia,
    The meaning is closer to #2. People thought that the police were questioning a woman, and now the police have said that it's true - that they are actually questioning a woman about Kelly's disappearance.

    The second sentence is similar. You thought you might be pregnant, and the doctor is going to tell whether that's true or not.
