    indirect Speech

    Convert the statement below into indirect speech
    Statement:

    The Chief psychologist said: “The general environment of a person ultimately has an effect on his character. People of every nationality have their own particular characteristics; those who now dwell on rugged mo0untain ranges invariably have a different outlook in life from those who live I the towns of the lowlands. So is it with the sea, which holds the hearts and love of thousands with its insistent call. This is why last year I preached tolerance and understanding.”
