He said to his brother, “Why are you so lazy today?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He asked his brother why he was so lazy that day.

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

    Present Indefinite Tense > Past Indefinite Tense.

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