She said to her mother, “Be calm and listen to what I am saying.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked her mother to be calm and and listen to what she was saying.

    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.
