exclamatory sentence

Post by hanuman_2000 » Mon Feb 06, 2017 12:03 pm


1. How beautiful is night!

Generally,The exclamatory sentence has 'How +adjective/adverb + subject+verb!' or 'What +noun with or without qualifier +subject +verb', but in the above sentence it not the same.

Is the above sentence correct?

2. How you have grown! (change in a assertive sentence)

Here in #2 , a sentence has been given in place an adverb or an adjective. I am not able to rewrite it.

Could you please help me?
