  1. Indirect Speech: He asked me that how had been the matter resolved.

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

    Past Indefinite Tense > Past Perfect Tense.

    And if the sentence is interrogative, we use the the reporting verbs – asked, enquired, etc.
