    A. Sentences that reveal urgency, strong surprise, or emotion
    Explanation
    An exclamatory sentence is a type of sentence that expresses strong emotions, urgency, or surprise. It is used to convey excitement, astonishment, or any intense feeling. These sentences usually end with an exclamation mark to emphasize the emotion being expressed. They are different from interrogative sentences, which ask questions, and from simple sentences, which consist of only one independent clause. Exclamatory sentences can be identified by the tone and punctuation used, as they are designed to make a strong impact on the reader or listener.
