He said to the boy, “Do as I tell you.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked the boy to do as he told him.

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

    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
