    Type of Adjectives

    Kindly tell me which type of adjective does the following sentence contain?

    He was absent last week?

    There are two adjectives i.e. 1- Absent 2- Last

    "He was absent last week" should not have a question mark at the end.

    What do you mean by "Which type of adjective"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Welcome to the forums, saddamkhalid.

    This looks like a homework exercise, which we will not give you the answers to. You must make your own effort first and we may comment.

    I assume your teacher gave you a list of types of adjective like this. Am I right?

    It could be a question.

    It could, that's true but without context, I will always assume that a statement where I can't know if the voice was raised in a question tone at the end, is a statement.
