John said, “I don’t know how to do this exercise.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: John said that he didn’t know how to do that exercise.

    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 > Past Indefinite Tense.
