John said to me, “Where have you been last night?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: John asked me where I had been the previous night.

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

    Present Perfect Tense > Past Perfect Tense.

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