Kinds of Sentence

Do you know? Depending upon what the sentences convey they can be classified into five types:

    • 1. Assertive
    • 2. Interrogative
    • 3. Imperative
    • 4. Exclamatory
    • 5. Optative

Assertive Sentences

An assertive sentence is a sentence which makes a statement or an assertion.
In all these sentences Preeti makes assertions about herself. Hence, they are assertive sentences. An assertive sentence ends with a full stop [.]

    1. My name is Preeti.
    2. I am nine years old.
    3. I am a good girl.
    4. I read in class IV.
    5. I go to school every day.

In all these sentences Preeti makes assertions about herself. Hence, they are assertive sentences. An assertive sentence ends with a full stop [.]

Interrogative Sentences

Interrogative Sentences are those sentences that ask questions.
This is Sonam. She went to a new school yesterday. She met many children there. They wanted to know about her. So they asked him the following questions.

Sonam replied all of them in the following way:
Reena: What is your name?
Sonam: My name is Sonam Paul.
Kavita: Where do you stay?
Sonam: I stay in Vikashpuri, F block.
Aman: How old are you?
Sonam: I am nine years old.
Amit: Which class do you read in?
Sonam: I read in Class IV.
Sohel: Who is your father?
Sonam: My father is Dr Vishvanath Sharma.

Imperative Sentences

The sentences which make a request, express an order, a command, expression or an advice are known as Imperative sentences. Read the sentences below and make a note of their punctuation.

    1. Be quiet! (a command)
    2. Please be quiet. (a request)
    3. Stop! (a command)
    4. Please stop here. (a request)
    5. Take care of your health. (advice)

In imperative sentences sometimes the subject is left out. ‘Don’t shout’ actually means ‘You don’t shout’. ‘Look here’ actually means ‘You look here’. Thus, in such sentences the subject implied is ‘You’. An imperative sentence may end with a full stop [.] or an exclamation mark [!].

Exclamatory Sentences

An exclamatory sentence is a sentence that expresses a strong feeling of wonder, joy or sorrow.
Read the following sentences:

    1. What a bad weather yesterday Delhi had!
    2. How beautiful the colour of your dress is!
    3. What a sweet voice Lata has!
    4. How clever the fox was!

In the above sentences, some feelings of wonder, joy etc. are shown, so they are exclamatory sentences. An exclamatory sentence ends with an exclamation mark (!).

Optative Sentences

The sentences which make a prayer, a wish or a desire are called Optative sentences.
Read the following sentences:

    • 1. Wish you all the best. (wish)
    • 2. May God help you! (prayer)
    • 3. Had I the capacity, I would help you! (desire)

An Optative sentence ends with an exclamation mark or a full stop.
