Interesting fact of Declarative Sentences

Common Mistakes

  1. Declarative sentences require a noun that performs the action, a verb, and the object of the sentence. The sentence ends with a full stop.
    When writing a sentence, follow the correct order. The subject is followed by the verb and then the object. However, an object is not necessarily always present.

    Example:

  2. Ending declarative sentences with an exclamation or a question mark.

    Examples:

    tickShe is sleeping.

    tickIt is snowing heavily.

    tickIt is getting hotter day by day.

    She is sleeping?

    crossIt is snowing heavily!

    crossIt is getting hotter day by day?

  3. A declarative sentence only conveys information and doesn’t make requests or express any emotions, or provide a command.
    Imperative sentences (used to make a command or a request) also end with a full stop but do not confuse it with declarative statements.

    Examples:

    Declarative Sentences

    tick I want you to switch off the AC.

    tick I want to use that spoon.

    Imperative Sentences

    crossPlease switch off the AC. (Request)

    crossPass the spoon. (Command)

    crossComplete your project. (Command)

  4. Place the subject before the verb.

    Examples:

    tickHe is feeling sad.

    tickThey are preparing for the journey.

    tickTeacher is teaching the students.

    tickThey are playing basketball.

  5. If the verb is placed before the subject, then the statements become interrogative, not declarative.

    Examples:

    1. Format of Interrogative Sentences
    2. Did you have tea?
    3. Was the movie good?
