John said, “Mary went to the store quickly.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: John said that Mary had gone to the store quickly.

    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 > Past Perfect Tense.
