Declarative Sentence

A declarative sentence states a fact or an argument and ends with a full stop (period ).  It is by far the most common type of sentence. 

Examples:

There are five million people at risk.
London is the capital of England. 
I am no wine connoisseur, but I know what I like.
She asked which dress I preferred.  (Although this is an indirect question, it is still a statement and, therefore, a declarative sentence.)
