A sentence is the tool of expression of a clear-cut thoughts or feelings of one. We can express our thought or feeling of our mind using a sentence, which may be in any form in structure. The expression will differ situation to situation. Based on the usage of sentences the structure of the sentence will differ.
In general, the structure of the sentence in English language are of three types, such as:
1. SIMPLE SENTENCE
2. COMPLEX SENTENCE
3. COMPOUND OR MIXED SENTENCE
All sentences are in the two forms that is one may ask any question and the other may tell the answer. So one sentence will always be a question or an answer. If a sentence is a question, it should have one INTERROGATIVE part in it. Interrogative utterances are expressed in the words, such as
10. HOW MUCH
11. HOW MANY
12. HOW LONG
13. HOW FAR
