Can you please help me to change these sentences to Imperative cause I still haven't quiet undestant


Imperative become infinitive phrases in reported speech, preceded by a verb such as tell, order, command. and ask, with a (pronoun) for the person addressed

Put into reported Speech, using the verb indicated:

1.Go Away (He told)

2.Come here (I asked)

3.Eat it up (Tell)

4.Run away (They told)

5.Pay at once (They ordered)

6.Fold it in half (She asked)

7.Give me another (Ask)

8.Write quickly (Tell)

9.Sit down (We asked)

10.Have a cup of tea (She asked)

I'll do one as an example for you:


1 .Go Away! (He told) : "He told her to go away."

They all follow that format, but be careful of specific references that change in the report:

2.Come here! (I asked) : I asked her to come ____."  The word 'here' has to be changed in some way, like " I asked her to come to where I was standing."
