She said to him, “Why didn’t you get up early?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked him why he hadn’t get up early.

    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.
