Declarative sentences are used to convey information or to make statements Declarative sentences are used when you want to make a statement. Whether it’s a bold statement or a simple fact, the sole purpose of a declarative sentence is to give information.  It always ends with a simple period. 

Writing simple declarative sentences is a matter of following a simple formula:
Subject + Predicate

Declarative sentences always have a subject and a predicate.  The subject can be simple with a noun phrase or it can be a compound subject.  Compound subjects are made of more than one simple subject combined with a conjunction such as and, or, and but.

Examples:
They've forgotten the sweets at the market..
Sana is studying her lesson. 
My mom cooks  delicious food everyday. 
The speech went on for hours, and the audience went wild.
My cousin wanted to leave for Mumbai to attend an interview, so he packed as quickly as he could.
