@Mahalakshmi are.

It is not option 4 because the indirect speech satisfies as "he", so it will be "You" in direct speech.

Why not it is option 4? Please explain me.

If we make an indirect speech for sentences in option A and B, We will get same.

The option A is correct. But how?

No, You are wrong Mr. Venkatesh.

A. Mahesh_Iiit_Basar (Cse) said the correct answer. Check it once.

Option C also seems right because I said, "You are not working hard".

This itself means telling to 2nd person. What's the use of writing 'I said to him'.

Teju said:   9 years ago
"Told" will become past sentence, and as we have convert into direct speech we have to use "said".

Dushanthi said:   9 years ago
What is the difference between said and told?

DIVYA (IIIT NUZVID) P-1 said:   10 years ago
We should not choose option B because "told" should not be followed by "to" and "said to " itself gives the meaning of "told. ".

Vani said:   1 decade ago
Why we are not choose option B?
