Narration Change of Interrogative Sentence

Narration Change of Interrogative Sentence

We change the “Reporting Verb” of direct speech into indirect speech according to the tense at the time of narration change. I have mentioned the reporting verb below.

 

Interrogative Sentence

Direct

Indirect

Say

Ask/Enquire of/Want to know

[,]

If, whether

[?]

[.]

When we change the direct speech of the interrogative sentence into the indirect, we use “Ask/Enquire/Want to know” instead of “Say”. Then we use “If/Whether” if the reported speech is yes/ no interrogative sentence. Next, we use a full stop instead of a question mark.
