When do we use 'said' and 'that' in reported speech.Explain

Dear Student.

Reported speech is usually used to talk about the past so we use the past tense form of the verb. Hence, "say" always changes to "said" in the reported speech. We use "that" when the sentence spoken by the speaker is an assertive sentence.

We hope that this answer solves your query.
