My 8th sentence might be wrong. Your's and Afshan's look more plausible. But for the teacher wala sentence and many others, I have a TIP- Avoid adding any words by yourself in the original sentence. Secondly 'told' will be converted to 'had told'.

here i agree with Amigo that we should avoid adding any words by our self ....

6. The teacher said, "You must not forget what I told you last lesson. I shall expect you to be able to repeat it next lesson by hear."

The teacher told me/said to me that I must not forget what she had told me last lesson and said that she would expect me to be able to repeat it coming lesson by heart .

there is a another rule that while joining sentences in indirect sentences, try to use "and that"

what if i write as:


The teacher told me/said to me that I must not forget what she had told me last lesson and that she would expect me to be able to repeat it coming lesson by heart.
