Note: What do you mean when you say "a report speech"?

Maybe it is too much to ask, I will invent the questions, and hope that some native speaker helps me to correct the answers.

I made some corrections above. Items in red and crossed out are for removal. Items in green I added. The green doesn't show up too well, so look closely for those items. Items in purple/violet are notes. I ran out of time making the corrections to yours, but I will come back later and answer your questions as myself. That should be faster, but I still wanted to help you with your English.
