He said, “Asha washes the clothes.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He said that Asha washed the clothes.

    Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the direct speech is in the present indefinite tense (simple present tense), then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past indefinite tense.

    Present indefinite tense > Past Indefinite tense.

    And if the sentence is interrogative, we use the reporting verbs – asked, enquired, etc. and while reporting the answer we use verbs like – replied, answered, etc.
