Question/Interrogative sentence:
An interrogative sentence is used to ask a question. When we need to know something, we use interrogative sentences. There are two types of questions: wh- questions and verbal questions. In an interrogative sentence, the position of the auxiliary verb is always before the subject.

A. Wh question. Example: Where do you live? Structure: Wh-word (Where) + Auxiliary verb (do) + Subject (you)+ Main verb (live) + Question mark (?)

B. Verbal question (yes/no question). Example: Do you like plants? Structure: Auxiliary verb (Do) + Subject(you) + Main verb(like) + plants Question mark(?)

Statement/Assertive sentence:
An assertive sentence is used to state facts, history, incidents, opinions, events, feelings, beliefs, etc. This sentence usually ends with a full stop.
Example: She writes a diary.
Structure: Subject (she) + Verb (writes) + Object (a diary)+ (full stop)

Interrogative Sentence ব্যবহৃত হয় প্রশ্ন জিজ্ঞাসা করার জন্য। যখন কোন কিছু জানার প্রয়োজন হয়, তখন আমরা Interrogative Sentence ব্যবহার করি। Interrogative Sentence দুই ধরনের। একটি ধরন হচ্ছে i) Wh Question, আরেকটি ধরন হচ্ছে | Verbal Questions বা সাহায্যকারী verb দিয়ে তৈরি Questions: Interrogative বাক্যে সাহায্যকারী verb টি সব সময় Subject এর পূর্বে বসবে। বিবৃতি/বিবৃতিমূলক বাকা

বিবৃতিমূলক বাক্য সাধারণত কোন সাধারণ সত্য, ইতিহাস বর্ণনা, ঐতিহাসিক ঘটনা বর্ণনা, মতামত, কোন ঘটনা, অনুভূতি ও বিশ্বাস প্রকাশের জন্য ব্যবহৃত হয়।

They were asking each other, “How can we count? Is it possible to count all the crows of a city?”. At that time, Birbal, an advisor of the emperor, walked in. He asked, “What is the matter?” They repeated the question to him.

Birbal immediately smiled and went up to Akbar. He told the emperor, “Maharaj, I know the answer. Can I tell?” Then, he announced the answer He said that there were twenty-one thousand, five hundred, and twenty-three crows in the city. Emperor Akbar asked, “How did you count the number of the crow?” Birbal replied, “Ask your men to count the number of crows. If there are more, then the relatives of the crows must be visiting them from nearby cities. If there are fewer, then the crows from our city must be visiting their relatives who live outside the city.”

The emperor smiled. He was pleased with the answer. As a reward, Akbar gave Birbal a ruby and pearl chain.
