Typically, we express a statement by using a declarative sentence (i.e., one ending with a period). But as noted in the text, we often express statements using other types of sentence, usually for rhetorical effect. We specifically defined a ‘rhetorical question’ as a case in which a person uses an interrogative sentence (i.e., one ending in a question mark) to make a statement, and a ‘rhetorical command’ as a case in which a person uses an exclamatory sentence (i.e., one ending in an exclamation mark) to make a statement.
For each passage, determine the statement made.
