He said to me, “You are honest, so I shall play with you from tomorrow.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He told me that I was honest, so he would play with me from the following day.

    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 > Past Indefinite Tense.

    And if the reporting verb is in the past tense, then the modals like will/shall change to would.
