Is the following sentence imperative or declarative?
Let’s go to the store.

The sentence you ask about can be either imperative or declarative. It depends on the context.

If you sat “Let’s go to the store” to a friend, smiling while you offer a friendly invitation, it is a declarative sentence. If you say “Let’s GO to the STORE” and imply NOW or I”M WAITING in your tone, it is definitely an imperative statement.

So . . . which did you mean?
