Topic: What are facts and Opinions in text? A fact is a statement that is true and can be verified objectively (without bias), or proven. In other words, a fact is true and correct, no matter what. An opinion, however, is a statement that holds an element of belief; it tells how someone feels. An opinion is not always true and cannot be proven.
