  13. Four Types of Sentences 1. A declarative sentence makes a statement. Use a period at the end of a declarative sentence. • Example: • Janelle is painting a picture of an imaginary place.

  14. Four Types of Sentences • 2. An interrogative sentence asks a question. Use a question mark at the end of an interrogative sentence. • Example: • Did she dream it up by herself?

  15. Four Types of Sentences • 3. An imperative sentence gives a command or makes a request. Use a period at the end of an imperative sentence. • Remember that the subject of imperative sentences is always you. However, the subject is "understood" and therefore does not appear in the sentence. • Example: • Think about all the uses for artwork.
