Interrogative Sentences Explained

What are interrogative sentences?

Interrogative sentences are sentences that are used to ask questions or make inquiries. They are used to obtain information, clarify something, or to initiate a conversation or dialogue. Interrogative sentences end with a question mark.

For example:

What time is it?

Can you help me with this problem?

Who is your favorite singer?

The use of who, what, where, when, why and how

Interrogative sentences can be formed by using a question word (such as who, what, where, when, why, or how).

For example:

What time do you want to meet at the park?

How long does it take to bake a cake?

When will you be home?

Changing a declarative sentence

Interrogative sentences can also be formed by changing the word order of a declarative sentence (i.e., a statement) to make it a question. In the latter case, the subject usually comes after the helping verb.

For example:

You are going to the store. (declarative)

Are you going to the store? (interrogative)
