Choose the most appropriate option to change the narration (direct / indirect) of the given sentence.
Sheema said, "Mintu changed the tubelight here."
Correct Answer : b ) Sheema said that Mintu had changed the tubelight there.Explanation :
The given sentence is in direct speech; we need to change it to indirect.
● In the case of the use of the Simple Past Tense (changed), we change it to ‘Past Perfect Tense’ (had changed).
● Adverbial of place ‘here’ (direct) changes to ‘there’ (indirect)
● Third-person pronoun, i.e., ‘Mintu’, there is no change.
● Commas and inverted commas are omitted, and ‘that’ is used.
The indirect form is – ‘Sheema said that Mintu had changed the tubelight there.’
Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
