the time has come to revert back to elementary school and retake this test, since it seems many of us have a hard time differentiating between the two ...

2. FAA investigators stated that the crash of TWA flight 109 was caused by faulty landing gear and not pilot error based
on the evidence that was recovered. (fact / opinion)

Interesting that they consider this to be an opinion. I always thought that whether or not someone stated something was not a matter of opinion.

A fact, the FAA guys said something. If they would have said "the flight blah blah according to FAA investigators" it would be opinion.

Mass .... Bah

The only thing you can say about that test, is that your answer would be an opinion, unless you have more facts about the questions stated.

Yikes. It's poorly programmed. I go the first one right, which sent me to the "correct" page. Once I went back to the test page itself, all the correct answers were highlighted as "visited", clearly showing the correct answer for every other question.
