How to use "Indicative" in context?

Indicative means indicating something by words or signs. It is a type of verb meaning "to point out, to show, to suggest."

Indicative verbs often require the use of one or more accompanying auxiliary verbs (usually "must," "can," "ought to," and "should"), to complete the action implied by the main verb. The indicative mood tells us when this action is taking place, and is used in all but the simplest of sentences.

Here are some examples of indicative verbs in use:

The plane is flying.

He is eating an apple.

Tom is taller than Tom.
