He said to me, “I have often told you not to play with me.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He told me that he had often told me not to play with him.

    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 told) > Past Perfect Tense (had told).
