    Indirect Speech: He exclaimed sadly that he had missed the train.

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

    Past Indefinite Tense > Past Perfect Tense.

    And if the sentence is exclamatory, we use the reporting verbs like exclaimed, admired, cried etc based on the sentence.
