  1. Indirect Speech: He asked me if I felt sorry for what I had done.

    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 (do feel) > Past Indefinite Tense (felt).

    And 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 (did)> Past Perfect Tense (had done).

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