My friend said to me, “Why are you sitting alone here?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My friend asked me why I was sitting alone there.

    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.
