1. He said, "Where do you live?"
2. He asked where I lived.
3. He asked where we lived.
4. He asked where he lived.
4. He asked where she lived.
5. He asked where they lived.
-----------------------------
Does #1 usually mean #2? What about the others? In Sentence 1, we can put the following after "he said." He said (to me, to us, to him, to her, to them) So according to the context, we can think of several sentences? Am I right?

  1. Yes, 1 and 2 mean about the same.

    3-5 mean that the original sentence was stated differently, such as ...

    He asked us, "Where do you live?"
    He asked him, "Where do you live?"
    He asked her, "Where do you live?"
    He asked them, "Where do you live?"
