Hello,
Grammatically speaking, a sentence is terminated by a dot. If you want to count the number of sentences, you just have to count the number of dots

Here is a piece of code. Not tested but the idea is here

int main()
{
char paragraph[1000];
int nbChar, nbSentences;

// display prompt and get paragraph
clrscr();
printf("Enter your a paragraph\n\n\t: ");
gets(paragraph);

// get number of characters
nbChar = strlen(paragraph);

// read paragraph and count dot character
nbSentences = 0;
for (int i=0; i<nbChar; i++)
{
if (paragraph[i]=='.')
{
nbSentences++;
}
}

// display result
printf("\n\nTotal sentences: %d", nbSentences);
getch();
return 0;
}

Note: I've renamed your variables to make sense
