They said, “We are busy.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: They said that they were busy.

    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
