Looking at our answer choices, there are four types of sentences:

  1. declarative sentence is a sentence that tells the reader about something, and it will always end with a period.
  2. An imperative sentence is a sentence that is a command, it tells someone to do something. This type of sentence will end in either a period or an exclamation point. 
  3. An interrogative sentence is a sentence that asks something, it's a question. This type of sentence will always end with a question mark.
  4. An exclamatory sentence is a sentence that shows excitement, surprise, or a strong emotion. This type of sentence will always end with an exclamation point.
