Change Interrogative Sentences Into Negative Sentences Without Changing Meaning

We can change an interrogative sentence into an assertive sentence without changing the meaning.


While transforming interrogative sentences into assertive sentences, we add 'not' if the interrogative sentence is in the affirmative.

An example is given below.

Interrogative: Is he not a bright student?

Assertive: He is a bright student.
