The master said to the lazy servant, “What are you doing here in the house?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: The mother asked the lazy servant what he/she was doing there in the house.

    Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the direct speech is in the present continuous tense, then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past continuous tense.

    Present Continuous Tense > Past Continuous Tense.

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