    Post reported speech wish

    Hello,

    Susan: 'I wish I lived in the mountains'.
    Susan said she ........she lived in the mountains.

    A. wishes
    B. wished

    I know that we can use 'wished' in the sentence, but I would like to know what if I use 'wishes' in it?

    Thanks.

    'Wishes' is fine if the words were uttered not long ago and Susan still wishes this.
