My friend said to me, “How nice of you to have come!” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My friend exclaimed that it was very nice of me to have come.

    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.

    And if the sentence is exclamatory, we use reporting verbs like exclaimed, admired, cried etc based on the sentence.
