    He claimed that he had seen her

    How to rewrite these sentences using direct speech:
    1. He claimed that he had seen her.
    2. He accused me of overreacting.
    3. Inspectors ordered them to pull it down.
    4. I warned him that I would take action.
    5. I wondered why he had done it.
    6. He refused to do anything about it.

    Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have changed your thread title so that it is unique to this thread, by using your first example sentence. Note my corrections above. We don't start questions with "How to".

    Why are you trying to put these into direct speech? Where did you find the sentences and what are you going to do with the new sentences?

    Also, please check your profile information. I don't think I've ever come across a Bahraini person whose native language is Brazilian Portuguese.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
