P eriod versus Question Mark
 
Lesson 5-1
Prompt:Declarative sentences, sentences that make a statement, end with a period. Interrogative sentences, sentences that ask a question, end with a question mark (?). A declarative sentence can be changed to a question by inflecting one's voice: "It is snowing." or "It is snowing?" However for this exercise, we will use the usual and customary pattern of words to show declarative and interrogative sentences.
