My father said to me, “Where were you last night?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My father 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 past indefinite tense, then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past perfect tense.

    Past Indefinite Tense (were) > Past Perfect Tense (had been)

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