Pretend = behave in a way that aims to give someone a false impression; to make believe with the intent to deceive: ‘He got into the conference hall by pretending to be a security guard.’ ‘She hurried past, pretending not to see me.’

Intend = have in mind as a plan or purpose; be planning to do something: ‘As soon as the baby falls asleep, she intends to go back to work.’

Claim = state that something is true, especially when there is no proof or evidence that it is true: ‘She claims that she wasn’t informed about the meeting.’
