The mother said to her son, “Did you have your breakfast?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: The mother asked her son whether he had had his breakfast.

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

    Past Indefinite Tense (did have) > Past Perfect Tense (had had)
