Indicative Mood

Mood is the form a verb takes to show the manner in which it is to be regarded (e.g., as a fact, a command, a wish, an uncertainty).

A verb used to make a statement or ask a question is said to be in the "indicative mood".  The vast majority of sentences are in the indicative mood.

Examples:

The sky is clear tonight.
She is not content with the outcome.
The aliens could not breathe our air.
Is that a whelk?
