Here are other two speech acts I changed into indirect speech. I'm posting you them separately.
1)“I think you should/ought to see a doctor”, she said.
2)“It seems to me that you should see a doctor”, she said.
3)“I (strongly) advise you to see a doctor”, she said.
4)“Don’t you think you should see a doctor?”
5)“I suggest/recommend that you should (?) see a doctor. I’d suggest/recommend that you should (?) see a doctor.”
6)“If I were you, I’d see a doctor.”
7)“Have you considered seeing a doctor?/ Have you thought of seeing a doctor?”
1-7) She advised/recommended me to see a doctor. She suggested/recommended I should see a doctor.
Are you quite clear on indirect speech? Visit some of the following links:
