What are Interrogatives?
Interrogatives are sentences in which a writer asks a question. Our words represent in a clear sense when an author or speaker transforms into questions. Verbally, we need a specific tone for expressing questions. In writing, we need a particular sign that is interrogative to show that writing is asking the reader. It also expresses a conversation between characters.
The rules of English language categorize interrogative sentences into four forms;
We use interrogative sentences in the form of YES or NO.
We can use them as alternative interrogative sentences.
We can also express interrogative sentences into WH form of asking questions.
You will see interrogatives as tag questions.
