KINDS OF SENTENCES

Sentences are of four kinds:

(1) Those which make statements or assertions; as,
  •  Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.


(2) Those which ask questions; as
  •     Where do you live?


(3) Those which express commands, requests, or entreaties; as,
  • Be quiet. 
  • Have mercy upon us.


(4) Those which express strong feelings; as,
  • How cold the night is!
  • What a shame!

A sentence that makes a statement or assertion is called a Declarative or Assertive sentence.

A sentence that asks a question is called an Interrogative sentence.

A sentence that expresses a command or an entreaty is called an Imperative sentence.

A sentence that expresses strong feeling is called an Exclamatory sentence.
