You can think about affinity audiences as extension of your offline campaigns. More about that you can read here, and in link I copied.
Kind regards, Sachin S.

Affinity audiences: Select from these audiences to reach potential customers at scale and make them aware of your business.
These audiences were built for businesses currently running a TV ad who would like to extend the reach of a TV campaign to an online context for an efficient price.

It depends.
You target with interest first, then narrow your audience with topics. That way you get really targeted ads.

Hi Sachin,

Drazen has given you some good advice here. His advice will come in handy if you have a limited budget on YouTube and have a requirement for quality traffic.

Layering your targeting with either topics or interest is also a good idea as it will give you a very niche targeting. I recommend, you do a Keyword Contextual Targeting and then layer it with either Interests or Topics to narrow down you targeting.

This was helpful to me when I was running my YouTube campaigns.

Hope this Helps!

Cheers!
