“My children, this is the last lesson I shall give you,” said the teacher.
Right Answer is: C
The spoken sentence is in direct speech. Since the reporting speech is in past tense, changes will be made to the tense of the reported speech tense while changing it to indirect speech. The reported speech is in present and future tense which will change to past tense in indirect speech. Also, the word “this” will change to “that” and “shall” will change to “would”. The pronoun “I” will change to “he”. Hence, option C is the correct answer.
Some aspirants might get confused as the sentence in indirect speech uses “that” two times here. The first “that” is working as a conjunction to add the reporting and reported speech. The other “that” is the conversion as we know that in indirect speech “this” gets changed to “that”.
