They said, “We are the housekeeper of the king of this island.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: They said that they were the housekeeper of the king of that Island.

    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.
