so normally I do know what facts are but still got confused, here's the question :

which TWO of these statements are facts?

1- you have to be daring to go on water rides
2- The coach will stop on the motorway at 8.30 pm
3- you will have a fabulous day out at the park
4- there are toilets and seating areas in the park.
5- It is best to queue for popular rides straightaway.

The fourth one is definitely a fact but I am not sure about the other one

The next thing is
so I had to answer a question by reading a paragraph which was about themes park, the question was "what is the name of the scariest rollercoaster in the world " the answer was written in a box at the side of the paragraph (so I already know its answer)
but I can't understand the question next to it:

which organisational feature helped you to find this name?
(can someone tell what organisational feature is?)

i think number 4 and 5 are facts but i might be wrong. the reason i think they are is because both 4 and 5 have the words “are” and “is” which are words you’d use for a fact. a fact is something that you can’t argue about, it’s true and it’s not gonna change.

number 2 and 3 have “will” in them which is talking about the future, saying something’s gonna happen but they don’t know for certain. for example, how would they KNOW you’re gonna have a “fabulous day out at the park?” what if it rains, what if your cat died and you were really upset? because it’s about the future and the future isn’t certain, it can’t be fact

as for the question about an organisational feature, i have no idea what it means either sorry!

Thanks for the help, I hope someone answers my second question otherwise I'll go crazy searching it repeatedly on Google which I have already done several times.

Hey, I don't really understand the second question but I would say that statements 2 and 4 are facts. Statement 2 says that it WILL happen, but statement 5 seems like an opinion to me

So a fact is classed something which is known or proved to be correct (ie there is evidence to back it up)

So number 5 is also a fact as it has been proved to be true.
Number 2 has not yet happen so, although the bus might stop at 8:30 on the motorway, it MIGHT not and so therefore there is no evidence to back it up as fact.

Organisational features are visual aspects of texts which indicate its importance within a text to help you find it quickly.
This can include a bold font, headings/subheadings, tables, index pages, etc

ok now it makes much more sense thanks, and the answer to the second question must be the main heading right?

Without having seen the text in question I don’t know

But if it’s in a box then that is it’s feature
“Display box”
If it’s a subheading for the text about the rollercoaster then it’s feature is “sub-heading”

I would definitely say 2 and 4 are the facts, number 5 is more of an assumption

Okay, so what sets it apart from the rest of the text. What makes it easy to find. What visual aid is used to help you find that information...

The word rollercoaster is being repeated in the text, other than that it could be the rides.

Think more visually-what makes it stand out. It isn’t just in with the bulk of the text.
Organisational features aren’t about the text content (what words are used) it’s about how it is laid out, how it visually appears.

I can't think of anything apart than roller coasters and theme park...

Organisation features are not about the text so forget about theme parks and rollercoasters.

Just look at the page. What makes that statement different to the rest of the text. Is it a different colour, is it a different font...
Look back at the examples I gave you earlier.

To be fair I have already given you the answer-as have others.
I’m sorry you’re studying at 2am.
