He said to me, “You will be tired before you arrive.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He told me that I would be tired before I arrived.

    Explanation: If the reporting verb is in the past tense, then the modals like will/shall change to would.

    And 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.
