  1. Indirect Speech: He wished me good evening and enquired that how I was.

    Explanation: While reporting imperative sentences we use reporting verbs like ask, request, beg, order, advise, wish etc to match the mood of the sentence.

    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 (are)> Past Indefinite Tense (was).

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