My friend said to me, “The police caught a thief yesterday.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My friend told me that the police had caught a thief the previous day.

    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.
