He said, “There was an accident outside the supermarket.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He said that there had been an accident outside the supermarket.

    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.
