I said, “Who knew that this would happen.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: I said that who had known that that would happen.

    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 (knew) > Past Perfect Tense (had known)

    Explanation: The modals – would, should, might, could, used to, etc don’t change.
