My friend said to me, “Are you coming to the party tonight?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My friend asked me whether I was coming to the party that night.

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

    Present Continuous Tense > Past Continuous Tense.

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

    Note: While answering to “yes or no questions”, we use if or whether.
