An interrogative sentence is one with a grammatical form indicating that it is a question.


There are two main factors that can indicate a question or interrogative sentence.

  • Question Words
    Words like will, what, how, can, or where at the beginning of a sentence indicate that it is a question.
    For example: What will we have for dinner?
    Without the question word, this is just a declarative statement.
  • Question Mark
    A question mark at the end of a sentence indicates that is is an interrogative sentence or question.
    For example: You are good?
    This may not be the most grammatically correct sentence, but it is a form frequently used in conversation. Without the question mark, it is just a declarative statement.
