Generally, an opinion is a view of something not usually based on facts or knowledge. Due to this, opinions come from personal perspectives meaning they are not usually right. Therefore, while providing their opinions, individuals often try to do this by making inferences from the evidence they have. People use opinions for offering advice or expressing taste in something or someone. As a result, they differ from facts because opinions are usually debatable.
