She said to me, “Will you tell me what it means?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked me if I would tell her what it meant.

    Explanation: If the reporting verb is in the past tense, then the modals like will/shall change to would.

    And 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.
