My father said, “We need to leave for the concert in an hour.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My father said that we needed to leave for the concert in an hour.

    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.

    Note: If the person is including you while referring, then it will be we.
