Declarative sentence is a sentence to which a truth value can be assigned, given a certain situation or circumstance.
(i) is a declarative sentence because we can assign it a truth value (e.g., in the actual world sentence (i) is not true).
(i) The Queen of Holland is bald
Sentences expressing a question or command are not declarative.
