Fact and Opinion
My sister is two years younger than me. Is this an opinion or a fact?

Fact and Opinion

Fact is true. Opinion is based on belief. An 'opinion' is the view somebody takes about a certain matter or subject. A 'fact' is something that can be shown to be true. Here are two examples:

  • Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world
  • Roses are more beautiful than tulips

One of them is an opinion and one is fact - do you know which is which? The first is a fact and the second is an opinion. Opinions are expressions of our beliefs. Facts, on the other hand, are expressions of what is true: even if we, personally, don't want to believe them.

See if you can get all ten questions correct in this 11-plus English quiz on fact and opinion.
