Direct and indirect speech Direct speech- It is the statement by the speaker. Indirect speech- The statement by the third person who is not the third person.
Example- Direct-> He said to me, "Ram has solved all the questions". Indirect-> He told me that Ram had solved all the questions.
Golden rule Indirect narration maintains the meaning of the sentence of direct narration, structure may change.
Example- Direct-> | said, "You have done very well" Indirect-> I said that he had done very well (as told earlier indirect speech, third person involved).
Golden rule Active and passive voice => Tense does not change. Direct and indirect speech => Tense changes.
