When we order something to someone then "said" is used instead of "said to". Hence "said" is more appropriate here than "said firmly" or "said to".

Option A is wrong here,

As there is no indication to whom the father was speaking with (him, her etc). Although there is no tone of authority in option B, but it's the most consistent and relevant answer.

So, I would go with B.

If the direct speech indicates an order, command then the indirect speech will changed to 'ordered'. Here option B will be correct because both the indication of an order and the person are also mentioned.

In a change of speech, Any sentence indicating as a sense of order should be like the option B. I think this is the correct answer.

Please explain because in A it is not mention that to whom he said or he ordered to got to room and study.

Please, anyone can describe that why answer A is right?

Parameshwar Gaded said:   6 years ago
I think B is the right answer.

Proyash said:   6 years ago
I think B should be the answer.

Hey guys.

A option is Wrong because In question His father ordered him and in option A there is His father said only. But I think that Option B and question are related and correct option is B because it involves His father said to him'.

Option A is correct, because by the words " go to your room and study " is an order itself.
