The mother said, “Anshu, what were you doing?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: The mother asked Anshu what she had been doing.

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

    Past Continuous Tense > Past Perfect Continuous Tense.

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