|In my option, we should mention indirect speech when referring some one.|
|Bharati said: (Jan 25, 2012)|
|I said, "You are not working hard." why is it not correct?|
|Mercury said: (Sep 7, 2012)|
|You shouldn't use that..... because you have to mention the second person.(here he).|
|Rashmi said: (Nov 15, 2012)|
|Why 4th option is not correct?|
|Yash said: (Mar 9, 2013)|
4th option is not correct because when you are using quotes, then we write the actual words of speaker.
|A.Mahesh_Iiit_Basar(Cse) said: (Dec 14, 2013)|
|I said to him, "You are not working hard." is correct.
Because, whenever "said to" comes we have to change it to as "told".
So it becomes,
I told him that he was not working hard.

|Why we are not choose option B?|
|Divya (Iiit Nuzvid) P-1 said: (Mar 26, 2014)|
|We should not choose option B because "told" should not be followed by "to" and "said to " itself gives the meaning of "told. ".|
|Dushanthi said: (Aug 27, 2014)|
|What is the difference between said and told?|
|Teju said: (Dec 26, 2014)|
|"Told" will become past sentence, and as we have convert into direct speech we have to use "said".|
|Venkatesh Pandya said: (Jul 1, 2015)|
|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'.
|Navya said: (Dec 21, 2015)|
|No, You are wrong Mr. Venkatesh.
A. Mahesh_Iiit_Basar (Cse) said the correct answer. Check it once.
|Nilesh said: (Sep 1, 2016)|
|The option A is correct. But how?|
|Dhananjay Suman said: (Oct 6, 2016)|
|If we make an indirect speech for sentences in option A and B, We will get same.|
|Mahalakshmi R said: (May 29, 2019)|
|Why not it is option 4? Please explain me.|
|Vivek Anand said: (Aug 24, 2020)|
It is not option 4 because the indirect speech satisfies as "he", so it will be "You" in direct speech.
