  1. Indirect Speech: The teacher asked the students if they had done their work.

    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

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