Q: How can you identify declarative sentences?

Q: What are some tips for writing interrogative sentences?
A: To write an interrogative sentence that asks a question, start by using a question word like who, what, when, where, why, or how. Make sure the sentence ends with a question mark instead of a period. For example: What time does the movie start? Where should we go for dinner? Who is your favorite author?

Q: How are imperative sentences different from other sentences?
