MUET MOMENTS

LESSON 15 Distinguishing facts from opinions Opinions can be influenced by the stories that you hear, the ethics that you hold or the perceptions that you have. When you feel strongly about an issue you form an opinion about it. You can identify an opinion when you see words like: – such as “presumably”, “maybe”, “could have been”, “believe”, or “feel”. Facts, however, are true, proven and can be verified by authoritative sources or statistics.
