Test: Reported Speech - 4 - Question 4

Steve's father told him to close the door.Convert the sentence into direct speech.

Detailed Solution for Test: Reported Speech - 4 - Question 4

To convert the given sentence into direct speech, we need to quote the exact words spoken by Steve's father. The correct answer is option A: "Steve's father: 'close the door'." Here's the explanation:
1. Direct speech: Direct speech is when we quote someone's exact words using quotation marks. In this case, we need to quote Steve's father's words.
2. Removing reported speech: The reported speech in the original sentence is "Steve's father told him to." We need to remove this and directly quote what Steve's father said.
3. Quoting the exact words: The exact words spoken by Steve's father are "close the door." We need to put these words in quotation marks to indicate that they are being quoted.
4. Adding speaker tag: To make it clear who is speaking, we need to mention that it is Steve's father who said these words. This is done by adding a speaker tag before the quoted words.
Therefore, the correct conversion of the sentence into direct speech is: "Steve's father: 'close the door'."
