He said to me, “I know what you did.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He told me that he knew 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 (know) > Past Indefinite Tense (knew).

    And if 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).
