She said to the fox, “Are the grapes sour?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked the fox if the grapes were sour.

    Explanation: 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.
