Four types of sentences
1) A declarative sentence: these sentences tell you about something. They are statements and end in a full stop.
My house is blue and white.
2) An interrogative sentence: these sentences ask a question and end with a question mark.
What's your name?
3) An imperative sentence: these sentences are commands. They end either with a full stop or exclamation mark.
Hand in the project by Friday.
Watch out for the cyclist!
4) An exclamatory sentence: these sentences show surprise or strong feeling and end with an exclamation mark. They always start with the words ‘what’ or ‘how’.
