So I have come across many teachers over the years and all of them give a different point of views and what I should and should not do.

When writing an Argumentative should I use "I","Me", etc?

Shouldn't the essay be based on facts and evidence. Not opinions and statements?

Thank you in advance.

Unless you're writing an opinionated piece, avoid first-person pronouns at all costs. Try employing the pronoun "one," if you really, really have to.

Depends on the context at hand. For the majority of the time stay away from those. You could ask the teacher beforehand though just to make sure.

Could you use that in an example? I'm not to sure what you mean by "one"
"One would think an argumentative piece would be easier to write."
That is how I avoid using first or second-person pronouns in writing if I somehow can't avoid using a sentence like this.
