This should help. I taught Shurley English for years.
Declarative - A declarative sentence makes a statement. A declarative sentence ends with a period.
Example: The house will be built on a hill.
Interrogative - An interrogative sentence asks a question. An interrogative sentence ends with a question mark.
Example: How did you find the card?
Exclamatory - An exclamatory sentence shows strong feeling. An exclamatory sentence ends with an exclamation mark.

Sometimes the subject of an imperative sentence (you) is understood.
Example: Look in the closet. (You, look in the closet.)
