regret

Postby hanuman_2000 » Fri Jan 17, 2014 7:36 am

Hello,

1. I wish I was not so rude to my teacher.

I have to change it into reported speech using "regret".

1.a) She regretted that she had not been so rude to her teacher.
1.b) She regretted that she had been so rude to her teacher.

Which one is correct?

Thanks.
