change into indirect narration
you said,"my brother has given me this pen"
When this is a direct quotation, the speaker's brother gave the pen to the speaker. When you change this to an indirect quotation, you also need to change the pronouns to be clear about whose brother gave the pen.
You said that your brother had given you the pen.
