  1. Indirect Speech: He asked me if I had been driving a car.

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

    Past Continuous Tense (wa driving) > Past Perfect Continuous Tense (had been driving).

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