    Question the differences between sunonyms

    Hi, How are you? May I ask you the deference between synonyms, please ? What are the differences between think, believe and suppose?  What are the most common ways of using them for native English speakers?

    There is a lot of overlap, but 'suppose' suggests an assumption and 'believe' a conviction.
