They said to me, “Do we not help you?’ Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: They asked me if they did not help me.

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

    Present Indefinite Tense > Past Indefinite 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.
