She said, “I was sleeping here in this room.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She said that she had been sleeping there in that room.

    Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the direct speech is in the past continuous tense, then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past perfect continuous tense.

    Past Continuous Tense > Past Perfect Continuous Tense.

    And 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.
