He said, “You gave him a toothache.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: He said that had given him a toothache.

    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 (gave) > Past Perfect Tense (had given).
