The mother said angrily to the child, “Why have you again lost your water bottle?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: The mother angrily asked the child why he/she had again lost his/her water bottle.

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

    Present Perfect Tense > Past Perfect Tense.

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