(ii) Manas greated Mayuri and asked her whether she had completed the project on women in space. The words spoken by a person/persons can be reported in two ways : Direct and Indirect.

      When we quote the exact words spoken by a person, we call it Direct Speech. Note that the exact words spoken by the speaker Manas are put within inverted commas.

There are some rules for changing Direct speech to indirect specch.

•n indirect speech no inverted commas are used,

• The part used before the inverted commas (for example: Manas said to Mayuri) is called reporting clause. The verb (for example: said) in a reporting clause is called a reporting verb.

• We can also make the speaker’s words a part of our own sentence. When we do so, the words are in Indirect speech বা  Reported Speech. While reporting a speech, we make changes to some of the words in Dircct Speech.

       Here is a sentence in Indirect speech. Write the sentence in Direct speech in the space below. Remember to use inverted commas.
