Interrogative Sentence

An interrogative sentence is one that asks a direct question and always ends in a question mark.

Examples:

What is the capital of Peru?
Has anybody seen my torch?

Although the sentence below contains an indirect question, it is a statement (a declarative sentence) and not an interrogative sentence. 

Example:

Sarah asked whether anybody had seen her torch. (declarative sentence)
