argument vs facts

Is there ever a case where we are given a main point question and the short passage only has a set of facts and is not necessarily an argument? Just curious.

In short, the answer is no. Even if it seems like a set of facts, the author's agenda will be in there somewhere. There will be a conclusion and premises to support it, just like every other argument presented to you. They won't ask you for the main point of a series of statistics or data. When the author draws a conclusion based on this information, that will be the main point.
