The boy said, “Sir, I am not guilty.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: The boy politely said that he was not guilty.

    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.
