ASSERTIVE                                    EXCLAMATORY

  • a/an  very/great/fine——— what 

If we find the word “A/An” before “Very/great” in assertive sentence, we will start exclamatory sentences with the word “What”. We will write exclamatory sentences following this structure

what + a/an + adjective + subject + verb!

For Example:

Assertive: It is a very interesting storybook.

Exclamatory: What an interesting book it is!

Assertive: It is a fine morning.

Exclamatory: What a fine morning it is!

Assertive:  The boy is a great fool.

Exclamatory: What a fool the boy is!

  •   Very/ great/ fine —————— How

If we find the word “Very/great” without “A/An” placed before very and great in the assertive sentences, we will start writing exclamatory sentences with the word “How”. We will start exclamatory sentences following this structure

How + adjective + subject + verb!

For Example:

Assertive:  The flower was very nice.

Exclamatory: How nice the flower was!

Assertive:  The morning was very cool yesterday.

Exclamatory: How cool the morning yesterday was!

Assertive: The boy is very tall.
