Right Answer is: A
The given sentence is in Direct Speech.
The given sentence is in Direct Speech because it quotes actual words. Therefore, it must be changed into Indirect Speech.
We notice that the reporting verb is in the Past tense (‘said’). Hence, a change will be made in the tense of the reported speech.
Also, the first person of the reported speech is changed according to the subject of reporting speech.
When we want to report an order or request, we use a verb like ‘requested’ with a to-clause. The pattern is verb + indirect object + to-clause.
Therefore, the sentence in Indirect Speech will be option A i.e. The child requested me to give him a piece of paper.
