The correct sentence is She said, "My brother is getting married".

Maica said:   3 years ago
She said, "My sister is getting married too" is the right form.

No, @Rishav Raaz.

A is not correct because when she is telling about herself, she is not going to use "Her". So, C is right.

Rishav Raaz said:   6 years ago
The answer should be A because her brother is the third person and by the rules 3rd person will not change, her brother is remained same.

Why not told?

Guys can someone tell me that 'her' is the 3rd person in reported speech but according to the answer how it is changing to 'my' somewhere I am getting confused.

So is there someone to explain?

Direct to indirect = present to past.

Question here is in indirect therefore convert it into direct by using present as it is from indrect to direct i.e., from past to present.

Notice that the sentence starts with "she said" so the whole sentence goes in past. Don't get confused, watch out how the sentence starts.
