He said, “Who has broken this slate?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He asked that who had broken that slate.

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

    Present Perfect Tense (has broken) > Past Perfect Tense (had broken)

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