    Untrue. Some statements presented as facts are false.

    Re: Factually incorrect

    Factually incorrect:
    The earth has three moons.

    Grammatically incorrect:
    The earth have one moon.

    Grammatically and factually incorrect:
    The earth have three moons.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
