Strawberries are the tastiest fruit. Is this fact or opinion?

Fact and Opinion

This KS2 English quiz will challenge you about fact and opinion. Fact and opinion is the difference between statement and belief. It is important to know the difference between fact and opinion, especially when you are reading a newspaper, writing a report, or perhaps researching a topic that interests you. An opinion expresses a belief or a feeling about something, while a fact is a statement that can be proved true with evidence.

Almost everyone has an opinion on everything, but that doesn’t mean what they say is factually correct or true. If you can’t verify it for yourself, don’t take it at face value.

See if you can tell the difference by trying this Fact and Opinion quiz.
