    Imperative or Interrogative?

    Please help me guys.

    Are asking permission sentences such as "May I go out?", "Could you lend me your book?", and "Can I ask you out?" considered as interrogative or imperative sentence. Please provide references.

    Thanks a lot.

    They're interrogative- the person has a clear choice.
