  1. Indirect Speech: He asked us what he had had the previous night.

    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 (did have) > Past Perfect Tense (had had)

    For example: did eat – had eaten

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