4. Let's learn some grammar:

Read the following sentences about Manas and Mayuri:

(i) Manas said to Mayuri, "Hello, Mayuri! Have you completed the project on women in space?"
(ii) Manas greeted 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 Mansa are put within inverted commas.


There are some rules for changing Direct Speech to Indirect Speech.
In indirect speech, no inverted commas are used.
The part used before the inverted commas (for example Manas said to Mayuri) is called the reporting clause. The verb (for example: said) in a reporting clause is called a reporting verb.
We can also make the speaker's words as a part of our own sentence. When we do so, the words are in Indirect Speech or Reported Speech. While reporting a speech, we make changes to some of the words in Direct Speech. We also often use the conjunction in Reported Speech.

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

Mayuri said that she had read about it on the Internet.
Answer: Mayuri said, "I have read about it on the Internet."

(b) In column A below are two sentences in Direct Speech. In column B there are the matching sentences in indirect speech. Are the sentences in column B correct? If not, rewrite them correctly in column C:
