    Is there a difference between these sentences?

    Hello guys,

    If someone ask about something, then one replies:

    a) I think so
    b) I think
    c) I guess so
    d) I guess

    So, could you tell me if/whether there are differences between a) and b) or c) and d).

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for your reply David, but I think option c) can be used as well/too.

    Someone asks:
    - What's it? Did you hear?
    - yeah, that's the doorbell, I think.

    - Is it your friend?
    - I think so / I guess / I hope so
