    I suggested that he had left

    1) I suggested that he had left.

    Does that mean:
    a) I affirmed that he had left.
    b) I implied that he had left.
    c) I affirmed that he might have left.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: I suggested that he had left

    I can't think of a context for the first sentence.

    Only 'implied' comes close to 'suggested'.
