    Re: Reported speech, statements...

    1)
    3 I'd use denied leaving
    5 The way you have it, your grandma ate the cakes in the the second version.
    6 Check tense in first version and why introduce the verb 'want' anyway?
    7 Should have + past participle
    2)
    1 gerund
    5 negative
    7 accuse someone of
    8 invited who?
    3)
    1/4/5/8 Tense
    9 not the best modal
    10 passive
    4)
    2 The two parts don't connect very well as 'if not' is not a question
    3 'Because' is not logical here- you don't want to speak to someone because they're not there
    4 The first part is a request asking her to do something
    6/7 tenses
