  1. Indirect Speech: He wrote to me that he was unable to come then as he was ill.

    Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past 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.
