3.8 Facts and Opinions

Fact
A fact is something concrete that can be proven. You can find facts in legal records, scientific findings, encyclopedias, atlases, etc. In other words, facts are the truth and are accepted as such.

Opinion
An opinion is less concrete. It's a view formed in the mind of a person about a particular issue. In other words it is what someone believes or thinks, and is not necessarily the truth. Also, note in the examples below how facts are the same for everybody, but opinions can differ quite widely.
