Exercise: Simple Sentences

A simple sentence follows the SVO (Subject-Verb-Object) order. It may have SV only. It has just one independent clause. It has just one subject and one predicate. It starts with a capital letter and ends with a full stop (for a declarative sentence or an imperative sentence). It may also end with an exclamation mark (for an exclamatory sentence) or a question mark (for an interrogative sentence).

For example,
A bird is flying. (Declarative sentence). Here, the subject is ‘bird’ and the verb is ‘is flying’. There is no object. The sentence can be expanded as: A bird is flying in the sky. Then ‘in the sky’ becomes the object.
Is a bird flying ? (Interrogative sentence)
The baby bird is flying ! (Exclamatory sentence)
