    Reported Speech

    "Who is the boy you are playing with?" Mrs Brown asked her daughter.

    In reported speech is the following sentence correct in relation to the above sentence?

    Mrs Brown asked her daughter who that boy she was playing with was.

    I believe something is wrong with the answer provided by the book, but I don't what the correct answer should be.

    Thanks.
