Hi teachers,
In relation to this part of a story:
Julia often gets up late and she got up late this morning. She showered and dressed very quickly.

Is this the appropriate answer? Or instead of 'this' I should write 'that'?
When did Julia get up late?
She got up late this morning.

Thanks in advance

She got up late this morning.
Since you are talking about "this morning", why do you think it might be better to say 'that morning'?

The answer could also be 'She got up late many mornings, including this morning.'

Hi canadian45,
Thank you for you reply and correction. I've just got confused with reported speech. That's why.

Best,

I see, but "this" and "that" have nothing to do with the unfortunate habit of backshifting verbs in reported speech.
