According to science, the fastest speed posssible for anything is the speed of light. The speed of light is about 186,000 mies per second. That means that in one minute, lighttravels 11,160,000 miles. The star nearest Earth is the Sun. It's about 93,000,000 miles from Earth. Therefore, it takes sunlight about ight miutes o travel to Earth. So, when you see the Sun, you aren't seeing it as it is. Yo're seeing it as it was eight minutes ago. Since the stars are much farther away than our Sun, imagine how far back in time you're seeing thm! Its's obvious that humans will never travel t planets around even the nearest stars.

Which statement taken from the paragraph is most likely to be opinion rather than fact?

a. The fastest speed possible for anything is the speed of light

b. Humans will never travel to planets around even the nearest stars.

c. The star nearest Earth is the Sun.

d. When you see the Sun, you aren't seeing is as it as it is.

OPTION "B" IS NOT A FACT BUT LIKE AN OPINION BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING WHICH IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR HUMANS.ALL OTHERS ARE PROVEN TRUE AND ARE FACTS OF SCIENCE.
