My mother said to me, “It is going to rain. Take an umbrella.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: My mother told me to take an umbrella as it was going to rain.

    Explanation: While reporting imperative sentences we use reporting verbs like ask, request, beg, order, advise, wish etc to match the mood of the sentence.

    And 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.
