Today I was doing sentence transformation exercises and I found this sentence:
1."Yes, I left the door unlocked", said Daisy.
2.Daisy ________ the door unlocked. (having)
I had to use from two to five words and I could not change the word in the brackets.
After a bit of research and teacher's advice I filled the second sentence like this:
2.Daisy left having the door unlocked. (having)
Is this correct?
I found in the Grammarway 4 (10th edition) that in reported speech Past Simple can be changed to both Past Simple and Past Perfect. After that my teacher told me that it is correct and we change tense to Past Simple when we report something said just a moment ago or when we ridicule someone's behavior.
I would also like to know if there are any other situations in which we change the tense to Past Simple?
