1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked me if I knew how to swim and if I would accompany her to the pool.

    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 interrogative, we use the reporting verbs – asked, enquired, etc.

    Will – Would

    Note: While answering to “yes or no questions”, we use if or whether.
