    Solution

    Narration change of imperative 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.

     

    Imperative    Sentence

    Direct

    Indirect

    Say

    Order/request/advise/command

    [,]

    Aff- to

    Neg- not to

     

    When we change the reported speech of imperative sentences, we use “Order/ request/ advise/ command” instead of “Say/ Say to”. Then we use “To” for affirmative sentences and “Not to” for negative sentences instead of comma marks.
