Choose the most appropriate option to change the narration (direct / indirect) of the given sentence.
Ganesha Kumar said, “What an amazing shot!”
Correct Answer : b ) Ganesha Kumar strong exclaimed what an amazing shot it was.Explanation :
The given sentence is in direct speech; we need to change it to indirect.
- Exclamatory sentences, reporting verb changes to ‘exclaimed’.
- Moreover, to change the exclamatory to assertive/simple sentence, Subject (it) + Verb (was) format is used in indirect speech.
- Pronoun ‘it’ is used to refer to ‘shot’.
- Present tense changes to past tense (was).
The indirect form is – “Ganesha Kumar strong exclaimed what an amazing shot it was.”
Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
