The Interrogative asks a question. A great way to remember the term ‘interrogative’ is to think of an interrogation room where a suspect is asked a series of questions.
Its as simple as that, really. The important thing to note is that when a question is being asked the sentence always ends in a question mark
The most common way to form the Interrogative is to put the auxiliary verb before the subject in the sentence.
This example uses the present continuous tense…
- John is walking down the street.
– a statement informing the listener about what John is doing
- Is John walking down the street?
– a question asking the listener for information.
