|In direct-indirect speech, present tense must be changed to past, here option A & option C is in past, option B & C is removed and in option A, CALM is not mentioned. So OPTION C is Accurate.|

|There are three situation in one sentence.
1) if you don't keep quite " there is an order "
2) i shall shoot you " there is a clear action "
3) He said to her in a calm way " there is an action ".
So answer would be in a past sentence as well as in the combination of three situation. That's way answer "C" is correct.
