  5. No caca, Ill give you an example
    Student one: Our teacher is very nice
    Student two: Our teacher has been in the army for 2 years
    Which student is saying a fact and which is saying an opinion? It's quite simple..Student one is saying an opinion while Student two is giving you facts. The teacher has been in the army, that's a fact which means the teacher has actually been in the army. There would be evidence to support that. You cant support opinions with evidence. That would mean it's a fact if you can support it with evidence. Usually, opinions start with I or have I in the sentence. Plus it says A- Fact can be supported with EVIDENCE. Sure, an opinion can be supported but not with evidence, an opinion can be supported by your mother, sister, father, brother, cousin anyone in the world. Your opinion being supported means that someone agrees with it. While a fact being supported usually means something supported by evidence. So yes, opinions can be supported but no, it's not number one because only facts can be supported with evidence. Case closed
