Indirect Speech: He asked her if she could tell him the secret.
Explanation: If the reporting verb is in the past tense, then the modals like can changes to could, will/shall change to would, have to changes to had to etc.
And if the sentence is interrogative, we use the reporting verbs – asked, enquired, etc.
Note: While answering to “yes or no questions”, we use if or whether.
