♦ Declarative Sentence

It provides us with information about anything or makes a statement. They end with a full stop. They are also called an Assertive sentence.

for example

♦ Interrogative Sentence

It asks a question and ends with a question mark(?) at the end.

for example– Does Ronit teach English?

Are students talking about Ronit?

Do we play here daily?

Was Ashoka a great King?

Is Chetan a successful writer?

♦ Imperative Sentence

These type of sentences express command, It gives instruction, request or wish.

for example– Stop walking on the grass.

Have a great journey ahead.

Shut the door before you leave.

♦ Exclamatory sentence

This type of sentence expresses exclamation or surprise and express strong emotions. It usually contains an exclamation mark(!)  within or at the end of the sentence.

for example– How exciting the game was!

Hurray!we have won the match.

Alas! he lost all his wealth.

What a funny movie it was!

The museum was so amazing!

Words alone can not convey our message or feeling to another person in a meaningful way. Yes, you can say words and the other person might understand what you are trying to say.

for example-  You need a glass of water or you want to tell somebody that his/her house is beautiful.

You can say water and the other person gets the idea that you need water. You point to the house and say beautiful and he/she gets the idea that you are talking about the house.

But a complete sentence makes conversation smooth and more meaningful.

So you could have said-  1.”I need a glass of water” or “Bring me a glass of water”.

2. Your house is so beautiful.

And these two sentences have made your message more meaningful and precise.

So this is all you need to know about a sentence and its types.
