40 Interrogative Sentences Examples in English

Interrogative Sentence

In English, sentences are constructed with the subject + predicate + object formula, but this formula takes the form of verb + subject + object when constructing a question sentence. There are two different types of questions in English. One of them is situation questions with auxiliary verbs and the other one is interrogative sentences formed with English question patterns. A person who makes a question sentence with question patterns in English expects an explanation from the person to whom he/she asks the question. In other words, a sentence formed with question patterns cannot be answered as “Yes” or “No”.
