    Question Indirect speech

    How do I change these sentences into indirect speech:
    1/ She said to me: "Isn't it dangerous to look at the Sun?"
    2/ She said to me: "It is dangerous to look at the Sun, isn't it?"
    3/ "Who put salt in my coffee?", she said.
    4/ Alice says, "I usually get up much earlier than you do, John."
    Thanks.

    She asked me if it was dangerous to look at the sun.
    She asked for confirmation of whether it was dangerous to look at the sun.
    She asked who had put salt in his coffee.
    Alice says she usually gets up earlier than John.
