  1. Indirect Speech: She told me that she would go shopping when mother would come.

    Explanation: 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.

    Note: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the simple present tense is used as a future form, it becomes would + verb, not simple past tense.

    comes – would come
