She said to me, “Did you have tea?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked me if I had had tea.

    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 (did have) > Past Perfect Tense (had had).

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