[F2英文][Reported Speech]求解[20點]

我想問下以下呢句點轉做reported speech

Mrs Lau : I do not know who killed Dr Koo.

Update:

So how about this sentence?

Mrs Lau : I did not know who killed Dr Koo.

If simple past tense--->past perfect tense,

will 'did' change to 'had done'?

But i think it is very strange.

    Indirect (=Reported) Speech which gives the exact meaning of the speech has Tense changes in reported speech.No change with the tense of verb in indirect (=reported) speech when the introductory verb is in the present tense.Direct Speech changes to Reported Speech past tense. Note that simple present tense -----> simple past tense.and that simple past tense------>past perfect tense.

    Direct:-Mrs. Lau : I do not know who killed Dr Koo.

    Indirect:-Mrs. Lau said that she did not know who had killed Dr. Koo.

    (according to present tense----->past tense ;ie:-do---->did)

    (according to past tense---->past perfect tense;ie:-killed ---->had killed)

    Some of the above changes can and should be verified yourself.

    Re:-She was innocent on (passive past) who killed (active past) Dr.Koo.

    did know--->didn't know--->active past--->passive past=was innocent=didn't know(Not change to had done.)

    Also active past=who killed.

    Should tryverify yourself.

    Mrs Lau doesn't know who killed Dr. Koo.

    Can you change this sentence into reported speech?

    Direct narration==Mrs Lau said,"I doesn't know who killed Dr. Koo".

    Indirect nattation==Mrs.Lau said that she didn't know who killed Dr. Koo.
