Choose the most appropriate option to change the narration (direct / indirect) of the given sentence.
Rani will tell him that Tina is ushering the guests.
Correct Answer : b ) Rani will say to him, "Tina is ushering the guests.”Explanation :
The given sentence is in indirect speech; we need to change it to direct.
In the case of direct speech,
- When the reporting verb (will say) is in the future tense, there is no change in the tense of reported speech (is ushering, i.e., present continuous tense).
- Therefore, the present tense remains intact in direct narration (is) as well.
- Commas and inverted commas replace ‘that’.
The indirect form is – Rani will say to him, "Tina is ushering the guests.”
Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
