A collection of words that are arranged to put forward a sensible thought is called a sentence.
To speak, read and write we make use of sentences.
All sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
Sentences are of the following types:
1. Assertive or Declarative Sentence:
A simple sentence that asserts or declares a thought is called an Assertive or Declarative Sentence.
An Assertive or declarative sentence always ends with a full stop. (.)
Example: Steve helped in cleaning the litter.
The teacher was extremely strict with his students.
Mother Teresa was born in 1910
2. Interrogative Sentence:
A sentence that asks a question is called an Interrogative sentence.
An Interrogative sentence ends with a question mark. (?)
Example: How did you prepare for the competition?
Did someone help you?
What are your future plans?
3. Exclamatory Sentence:
A sentence that conveys the exact feeling that the speaker wants to express is called an Exclamatory sentence. An exclamatory sentence ends with an exclamation mark. (!)
