She said to me, “I had no time for you.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She told me that she had had no time for me.

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

    Here, ‘had’ is itself a verb. Therefore, the sentence is a past indefinite tense sentence (simple past tense).
