While a bug is found by T.E & fixed by Dev team,bug should be re-tested to ensure that its fixed properly whether to go for Regression or Re-testing depends upon the following factors.
1. We will do Re-testing if the bug is not related to any other features
2. We will opt for Regression if the bug is related to some other features..

Retesting/Confirmation Testing is done to check whether the Failed tc/Failed Functionality is working fine after the fix.

Regression Testing is done to check whether any of the other functionality is affected after the fix.

So in this context Retest is performed on 20 Failed TC
Regression Test is performed on 80 Passed TC.

Re-Testing is done to check on the same build with multiple data sample to check the robustness (stable enough) of the application
