Lots of nations.

Which is correct:

1- It is an exclamatory sentence.

It mean “What a lot of nations!”

2- It is a declarative sentence.

It mean “There is a lot of nations.”?

Thank you

It could be either one. An exclamation is just a statement or question said with surprise, awe, excitement, etc. When spoken, the tone of voice and maybe cadence would change. When written we simply use an exclamation mark which doesn’t convey as much detail as the spoken words can have.
