He said to me, “When I was teaching, Sohan was dozing.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He told me that when he had been teaching, Sohan had been dozing.

    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 > Past Perfect Continuous Tense.

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