He said to us, “The police did not arrest the thief.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He told us that the police had not arrested the thief.

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

    Past Indefinite Tense > Past Perfect Tense.
