Understanding Interrogative Sentences

An interrogative sentence is primarily used to seek information. In English, there are three major types of questions: Yes/No Questions, WH- Questions, and Tag Questions.

  • Yes/No Questions: These questions can be answered with a simple yes or no. They usually start with an auxiliary verb. For example, "Are you coming to the party?"
  • WH- Questions: These questions start with a WH- word (who, what, where, when, why, how) and seek detailed information. For example, "What time is the movie starting?"
  • Tag Questions: These are statements turned into questions by adding a question tag at the end. For example, "The sky is blue, isn't it?"

Using Interrogative Sentences

While asking questions in English, the word order is critical. For Yes/No questions, the structure is Auxiliary Verb + Subject + Main Verb. In WH- questions, the structure is WH- Word + Auxiliary Verb + Subject + Main Verb.
