Could somebody suggest a single word for 'I think it is right but not exactly sure about it'.

I can say 'I am almost sure' but wondering if a word exists with same meaning.

  • A single word? How about probably? Single words don't often carry quite so much information in them. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Apr 9 '14 at 7:08
  • prabably is half by half chance, isn't it? Here want to say "I am almost sure" (like 80-90% sure about that!) – Junaid Apr 9 '14 at 7:23
  • Not half/half, no. More like 70/30, if I were to put a number to it. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Apr 9 '14 at 13:23

I am confident

implies a high degree of sureness, but not quite certainty.


I believe ...

I assume ...

"Assume" shows the speaker takes it for granted.
