we learned about objective and subjective opinions authors may have today and although I got every other question, I can't seem to figure out the following two:
tell the objective and subjective opinion in each statement and list if the subjective opinion is explicit or implicit.
1.The cause of this situation is the mayor’s irresponsible plan.
2.In my opinion, this officials decision to hire his realities should be treated as a crime.
3.In the past, officials who committed such outrageous acts were prosecuted.
(with 1 and 2 I couldn’t figure out the objective fact and with 3 I couldn’t figure out subjective opinion)
1. Does the mayor have a plan? If so, that's the objective fact; it's a fact, not an opinion. Now ... tell me about the word "irresponsible."
2. Do you mean "relatives"? What words refer to facts? Those are objective. What words indicate opinion? Those are subjective.
3. What are the facts? What is/are the opinion/opinions?
