    Indirect Speech: She told me that she was going to shopping and asked if she could get something for me. Explanation: 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. And if the reporting verb is in the past tense, then the modals like can changes to could, will/shall change to would, have to changes to had to etc.

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