  1. Indirect Speech: He said that he had to finish that report by five o’clock.

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

    Present Perfect Tense > Past Perfect Tense.
