Indicative Mood: Facts and Reality

The most commonly used mood in English is the indicative mood. It's used to state facts, opinions, and questions about reality. For example:

  • The sky is blue. (Fact)
  • I think you are right. (Opinion)
  • Is she going home? (Question)

Imperative Mood: Orders and Requests

The imperative mood is employed when we're giving orders, instructions, or making requests. There's often an implied 'you' at the beginning of these sentences. For instance:

  • Open the door. (Order)
  • Please be quiet. (Request)

Subjunctive Mood: Hypotheticals and Necessities

The subjunctive mood expresses hypothetical scenarios, wishes, advice, and necessities. It may seem old-fashioned or formal, but it's still prevalent in English today. Consider these examples:

  • If I were a bird, I would fly all day. (Hypothetical)
  • It's important that she be here before noon. (Necessity)
