1.

Yikes! I feel terrible that you got into an accident this morning!

Answer: Exclamatory
Explanation:
The given sentence expresses a strong emotion of feeling terrible about the accident. It uses an exclamation mark at the end, which is a punctuation mark used to indicate strong feelings or surprise. Therefore, the sentence is classified as an exclamatory sentence.
2.

The smoke alarm battery should be changed at least once a year.

Answer: Imperative
Explanation:
The sentence "The smoke alarm battery should be changed at least once a year." is an imperative sentence. Although it does not directly command someone in the form of a direct order (like "Change the smoke alarm battery!"), it implicitly directs the performance of an action, which is characteristic of the imperative mood. This sentence advises or instructs that the smoke alarm battery needs to be changed annually, making it imperative rather than merely stating a fact (declarative), expressing strong emotion (exclamatory), or asking a question (interrogative).
3.

Shut that door now.

Answer: Imperative
Explanation:
The given sentence "Shut that door now." is an example of an imperative sentence. Imperative sentences are used to give commands or make requests. In this case, the speaker is commanding someone to shut the door immediately. The sentence lacks a subject and ends with a period, which are common characteristics of imperative sentences.
4.

Use at least five hundred words in your essay.

Answer: Imperative
Explanation:
The correct answer is "Imperative." An imperative sentence is a type of sentence that gives a command, request, or instruction. It is used to express a direct order or to make a strong suggestion. Imperative sentences often begin with a verb and do not typically include a subject. They are straightforward and assertive, aiming to get someone to take action or do something. Examples of imperative sentences include "Close the door," "Please pass the salt," and "Don't forget to turn off the lights." In contrast, declarative sentences make statements or provide information, exclamatory sentences express strong emotions or feelings, and interrogative sentences ask questions.

6.

Answer: Imperative
Explanation:
The given statement "Get up out of that bed immediately" is an example of an imperative sentence. Imperative sentences are used to give commands or make requests. In this case, the speaker is commanding someone to get out of bed immediately. The use of the verb "get up" and the adverb "immediately" emphasizes the urgency of the command.
8.

May I have a pencil?

Answer: Interrogative
Explanation:
The given statement "May I have a pencil?" is an example of an interrogative sentence. It is a type of sentence that asks a question or seeks information. In this case, the speaker is asking for permission to have a pencil. The use of the modal verb "may" indicates that the speaker is seeking permission rather than making a direct request. Therefore, the correct answer is "Interrogative."
9.

Answer: Declarative
Explanation:
The given statement "ALBHS is located in Kannapolis, North Carolina" is a declarative sentence because it is making a statement or giving information about the location of ALBHS. It is not asking a question (interrogative), giving a command (imperative), or expressing strong emotion or surprise (exclamatory).
10.

Mrs. Williams' class is the best!

Answer: Exclamatory
Explanation:
The given statement "Mrs. Williams' class is the best!" expresses strong emotion or excitement, which is characteristic of an exclamatory sentence. The use of the exclamation mark at the end further supports this. It is not a declarative sentence because it does not simply state a fact or make a statement. It is not an interrogative sentence because it does not ask a question. It is not an imperative sentence because it does not give a command or make a request.
