Worksheet Overview

A question is a sentence that needs an answer. It ends with a question mark.

How old are you?

Are we there yet?

What time is tea?

 

A command is a sentence that tells somebody to do something. It usually starts with a verb (an action or doing word) and can end with a full stop or an exclamation mark.
