Please explain more. What language are you using? and what do you mean by reverse sentence? do you mean to write all or the words in reverse order?

Please, tag your question in order to clarify which programming language you use.

Just wondering. How can this be useful? Maybe homework, but I think the teacher should better create some "realistic" examples.

No effort.

No effort, bad formulation. Why are you people even bothered to Answer.

Break the sentence into individual words, then build a new sentence in reverse:
string sentence = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog";
string[] words = sentence.Split(' ');
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(sentence.Length);
string separator = "";
for (int i = words.Length; i > 0; i--)
    sb.Append(words[i - 1]);
    separator = " ";

s = "alpha beta gamma #wer5"
t = {}
for w in string.gmatch(s, "([^%s]+)") do
for i = 1,#t do
  io.write(t[#t-i+1] .. " ")

Nice :)
And one more version :) :
public static class Reverser {
    public class Word {
        public int Index { get; set; }
        public string TheWord { get; set; }
    public static string DoTheJob(string sentence) {
        int counter = 0;
        string result;

        var query = from word in sentence.Split(' ')
                     select new Word {
                         Index = counter++,
                         TheWord = word
        result = string.Join(" ", query.OrderByDescending(i => i.Index).Select(i => i.TheWord).ToArray<object>());

        return result;

The usage:
Reverser.DoTheJob("Some string in here");

And the output
here in string Some

5. Reversing is apparently fascinating.

Thanks, reversing is definitely one of the most rewarding tasks in life, has to be :)
Here is my guess. It is in C#

to reverse a sentence...

string result = "";
string sentence = "This is a sentence";

string[] words = sentence.Split(' ');
for(int i = words.Count - 1; i >= 0; i--)
    result += words[i] + " ";

result = result.Trim();
//result is now "sentence a is This"

Two C# answers. :)

Here is my C++ version:
#include <iostream>
#include <sstream>
#include <string>
#include <vector>

int main()
    // Our test string
    std::string str = "One Two Three Four Five";
    // Extract words from sentence
    std::vector<std::string> words;
    std::istringstream iss(str);
    for(std::string word; iss >> word; words.push_back(word));
    // Fill the new string with extracted words in reverse order
    std::string rwstr;
    for(int i = words.size() - 1; i >= 0; rwstr += words[i--] + " ");
    // Check the results
    std::cout << "\n Original string: " << str;  // Prints: One Two Three Four Five
    std::cout << "\n Word order reversed: " << rwstr; // Prints: Five Four Three Two One
    return 0;
