My friend said to me, “I did what I could do.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My friend told me that he/she had done what he/she could do.

    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 > Past Perfect Tense.

    And the modals – would, should, might, could, used to, etc don’t change.
