  1. Indirect Speech: Ram asked me if I had gotten my pen.

    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 if the sentence is interrogative, we use the reporting verbs – asked, enquired, etc.

    Note: While answering to “yes or no questions”, we use if or whether.
