He said to me, “I have often played with fire.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He told me that he had often played with fire.

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

    Present Perfect Tense (have played) > Past Perfect Tense (had played).
