In English grammar, mood refers to the manner in which a verb is used in a sentence. Moods help us express different types of sentences, such as statements, questions, commands, and hypothetical situations.
In traditional grammar, there are three ways to explain moods: the Indicative, Imperative, and Subjunctive.
However, modern grammar has made a slight change and added the Interrogative mood. So, in simpler terms, we can classify moods into four categories:
- Declarative or Indicative Moods
- Interrogative Moods
- Imperative Moods
- Subjunctive Moods
The interrogative mood is used to ask questions. It involves using a verb to inquire or seek information. This Mood is equal to the Interrogative sentence.
