  1. Indirect Speech: The coach said that if I stayed after school the next/following day, he/she would solve it.

    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.

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