He said to me, “Wait until I come.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He asked me to wait until he came.

    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 (come)> Past Indefinite Tense (came).

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