Interrogative Sentences Examples
A sentence is a group of words that has a subject and a verb and expresses a complete thought. There are four main sentence constructions (simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex), and there are four main functions that sentences perform. These functions are declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, imperative.
An interrogative sentence is a sentence that masks a question. The word "interrogate" means to ask questions.
Interrogative sentences can be simple, compound, complex, or compound-complex sentences. They always ask a question, and they always end with a question mark.
Interrogative sentences, or questions, typically have a unique word order. We think of a sentence as starting with a subject, and then the verb and the rest of the information follows. Interrogative sentences usually put the verb before the subject, and if the verb doesn't come first, the sentence will typically begin with an adverb or with a pronoun. Sometimes that pronoun acts as the subject of the sentence.
