I was just going through my daughter's P5 English Semestral Assessment 2 Paper and couldn't help but wonder about:
#1. "I had dinner with Uncle John just now," Shane told his mother.
Shane told his mother _____________________________________
My daughter answered "Shane told his mother that he just had dinner with Uncle John."
The answer was marked wrong by the teacher. Accordingly, the correct answer is:
"Shane told his mother that he had had dinner with Uncle John just then."
I'm puzzled. What am I missing?
