What are “Interrogative Sentences”?


Interrogative sentences are used to ask questions. They may ask for information or for confirmation or denial of a statement. An interrogative sentence usually changes the word order so that the verb or part of the verb comes before the subject. A question mark (?) is the proper ending punctuation for an interrogative sentence.


Interrogative words are as follows:

What, When, Where, Which, Who, Whom, Whose, Why, How


Interrogative words and what they refer:

What – refers ‘specific information’ or confirmation/repetition

When – refers ‘at what time’ or ‘on what occasion’

Where – refers ‘in what place, position or situation’

Which – refers ‘choice or alternative’

Who – refers ‘identity’ of a subject (person/people)

Whom – refers ‘identity’ of a object (person/people)

Whose – refers ‘who something belongs to’

Why – refers ‘reason, explanation or purpose’

How – refers ‘way or manner’, ‘condition or quality’


These words are called 'Wh-question words' because all these words contain letter ‘w’ and ‘h’. All these words (except ‘how’) even start from ‘Wh’.


NOTE: The following words are also used to ask questions:

Whatever, Whenever, Wherever, Whoever

These forms show ‘surprise, confusion, or emphasis.


Besides ‘Wh-question words’, Auxiliary Verbs ‘Be’, ‘Do’, ‘Have’, and ‘Modal Verbs’ are also used to form interrogative sentences. Following is the list of auxiliary and modal verbs:

Auxiliary Verb-- Be-- Am, Is, Are, Was, Were

Auxiliary Verb-- Do-- Do, Does, Did

Auxiliary Verb-- Have-- Have, Has, Had

Modal Verbs-- May, Might, Can, Could, Will, Would, Shall, Should, Must, Need, Used (To), Ought (To), Dare

You can begin sentences with these verbs to form Yes/No interrogative sentences.


Structure (1) --

Wh-Family Word + Be/Do/Have/Modal


You should ask a question starting with the question word if you want more information than a simple yes/no answer. In this kind of question you usually use an auxiliary verb or a modal verb after question word


(1A). What + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1B). When + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1C). Where + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1D). Which + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1E). Who + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1F). Whom + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1G). Whose + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1H). Why + Be/Do/Have/Modal

(1I). How + Be/Do/Have/Modal


(1A). What + Be/Do/Have/Modal
