Kinds of Sentences – Class 4

Every sentence has some meaning. Based on the meaning they convey we can say that there are mainly four types of sentences:

  1. Declarative sentences (also known as Assertive sentences)
  2. Interrogative sentences
  3. Imperative sentences
  4. Exclamatory sentences

Declarative (Assertive) sentences:
A Declarative sentence merely says or states something. We put a full-stop (.) at the end of a declarative sentence.
Example:
1. Rohan is playing football.
2. Sanjana is my friend.
3. Virat Kohli is the captain of Indian Cricket Team.

Interrogative sentences:
A interrogative sentence asks a question. We put a question mark (?) at the end of an interrogative sentence.
Example:
1. Who is the Prime Minister of India?
2. Which is your favourite movie?
3. Where is my book?

Imperative sentences:
An Imperative sentence expresses a command, order, request or advice. We put a full-stop (.) at the end of a imperative sentence.
Example:
1. You must not talk on mobile while you are driving. – command
2. Please accept my application for leave. – request
3. You should always rise early in the morning. – advice

Exclamatory sentences:
An Exclamatory sentence expresses some strong feelings or emotions. We put a mark of exclamation (!) at the end of a exclamatory sentence.
Example:
1. You are such a great singer!
2. What a beautiful house you have!
3. How beautiful is the flower!
