10.3 Å synes - å tro (think)

The verb think can be translated into different verbs in Norwegian depending on meaning.

If you want to express your opinion (often based on experience) you use å synes:

If there is some kind of uncertainty you use å tro:
Jeg tror at sjokoladen er god. (tro = think/believe)
