  1. Indirect Speech: The teacher asked if students had been alright.

    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 > 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.
