I said, “I admit that I acted foolishly in what I did.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: I said that I admitted that I had acted foolishly in what I had done.

    Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) 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 (admit) > Past Indefinite Tense (admitted).

    And 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 (acted/did)> Past Perfect Tense (had acted/ had done)
