    Question Facts vs. Opinions

    Hello, I'm Elina and I need your help on the problems:
    1. Although I understand that facts is the truth statement and opinion is not, when it comes to a paragraph, I feel it's much harder to know which one is a facts. Plz give me some tips.
    2. What is the different between paraphrase, summary, research paper, informative essay, narrative, and an position paper?

    Re: Facts vs. Opinions

    Facts can be verified objectively or tested, while opinions are personal and subjective. If you and I watched a football game, the result would be a fact but you might think it was a great game while I was bored. Usually, our reactions and opinions are true- they're what we feel or believe, but they are not necessarily universal.
