    A successful persuasive essay does not merely argue opinions, but rather presents well-reasoned arguments supported by evidence and logic to persuade the reader to agree with a particular viewpoint or take a specific action. It goes beyond simply stating opinions and focuses on convincing the audience through persuasive techniques. Therefore, the statement that a successful persuasive essay argues opinions is false.
