John said to me, “I hope to win this prize.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: John told me that he hoped to win that prize.

    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.
