A sentence’s main clause shows whether it is being used as a statement, a question, a command or an exclamation.


Give the reader information.

Examples include:

  • I picked up my toys.
  • Sam writes his answers.


These are used to find out information.

Examples include:

  • Where do the toys go?

These usually include an imperative verb as the first word of the sentence and give instructions, telling someone to do something.

Examples include:

  • Pick up your toys.

An exclamation can be used to show a sudden or strong emotion. They can begin with the words ‘How’ or ‘What’.
