She said to her servant, “How foolish you are!” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She told her servant that he/she was very foolish.

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

    Present Indefinite Tense > Past Indefinite Tense.

    And if the sentence is exclamatory, we use reporting verbs like exclaimed, admired, cried etc based on the sentence.
