Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

Follow the example below to understand the change.

Ravi said 'I may come tomorrow' Ravi said that he might come tomorrow.

Please note that the tenses do not change when you change the speech. If you change the tense, the meaning is not restored.

Given below are some of the changes in the modals. There are more as these are based on the tense and the situation.
  • can - could
  • may - might
  • shall -would
  • will - would
I hope you find this answer helpful. Please post more questions on the forum to be assisted by our team.
