I just had those same questions on my exam.
Your question was about the commas, but I couldn't help
myself and try to improve your sentences.

Were your answers correct?
I prefer this:

After he began the meeting, he said, 'I am going home'.

Though, I'm British. Americans typically use the aesthetic full-stop, not the logical full-stop that we've used, in sentences that end with a quote. They also use double quotation marks where we wouldn't:

After he began the meeting, he said, "I am going home."

Emotion: whisper Incidentally, I think you meant to write, 'but I couldn't help myself and tried to improve your sentences' or 'but I couldn't help but try to improve your sentences'. Pesky tenses.
