I said to him, “Was it raining hard yesterday?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: I asked him if it had been raining hard the previous day.

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

    Past Continuous Tense > Past Perfect Continuous Tense.

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

    Note: While answering to “yes or no questions”, we use if or whether.
