Declarative sentences make statements. In effect, they declare something. Declaratives always end with a period, as the form punctuation. They serve the function of providing information to the reader. These are the most commonly found sentence types. Interrogative sentences are looking for answers. They ask questions. As a result they always end with a question mark. This collection of worksheets will have you work with both sentence types. You will create your own sentences as well as identify the function of pre-written sentences.

How to Write Declarative and Interrogative Sentences
We write statements (declaratives) all the time. It is the most common way to share information. This form of sentence writing is by far the most widely used sentence form. It’s easy to understand that not many works at all can be written with a declarative. All declarative sentences are composed of two parts: a subject and a predicate. The subject could be in simple or compound form (subject combined with a conjunction). When you are trying to add more detail to your sentences, you can also go with a compound declarative sentence. Length does not always equal quality in the sense of writing.
There are commonly thought to be four types of interrogative sentences (question based). The first form is the yes/no interrogative. These are questions that can be replied to with one of those two (yes/no) responses. On this website we have answer keys for everything, except for questions that have infinite possible answers. Those types of questions (interrogatives) are called alternative because they have many alternative answers. Wh- interrogative sentences are sentences that start a wh-word and ask for an open-ended response. The answer can require great detail or just be simplistic. An example question might be: What type of work do you do for a living? The last types of interrogatives are called tag questions. They get that name because they are tagged (added) onto the end of declarative statements. In effect, they transform a statement into a question. An example of this might be: You are from the wonderful State of California, aren't you?
