She said to me, “I have got what I expected.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She told me that she had gotten what she had expected.

    Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the direct speech is in the present perfect tense, then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past perfect tense. Present Perfect Tense (have got) > Past Perfect Tense (had gotten)

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