  1. Indirect Speech: The eye surgeon asked whether I could read the last line there.

    Explanation: If the reporting verb is in the past tense, then the modals like can changes to could, may changes to might, will/shall change to would, have to changes to had to etc.

    And if the sentence is interrogative, we use the reporting verbs – asked, enquired, etc.

    Note: While answering to “yes or no questions”, we use if or whether.
