# Is this interrogative sentence or imperative sentence: "Tell me something about yourself."?

Aug 17, 2016

It is an imperative sentence.

#### Explanation:

The word order (lack of subject) indicates that this sentence is imperative. You ask someone to do something (to tell about yourself).

The interrogative sentence would have order: $V - S - O$.

An example could be: Could you tell me anything about yourself?

Here the word order and use of anything in place of something indicates an interrogative character of the sentence.
