1) Our sociology professor said that he expected us to be in class every day and that unexcused absences may affect our graders.

(When there is no object after reporting verb, it is better to keep the original verb unchanged (professor said), Also the professor is only expecting something, he is not warning to students. While joining two sentences in indirect narration, try to use ‘and that’. There is no need of inserting ‘should’ in the sentence.

2) My father advised me to view problems in my life as opportunities as every obstacle is a stepping stone to success.
OR
My father advised me that I should view problems in my life as opportunities as every obstacle is a stepping stone to success.

(It is better to change the arrangement so that the part of sentence in which the father advises something comes after the words: ‘my father advised me’)

3) Tom asked Jack, “Why you cannot go to home?”, “I don’t have enough money for ticket”, said the Jack.

4) I said to the ticket seller, “Is the concert going to be rescheduled?”, “I don’t know, I just work there”, said the ticket seller.

5) Ali said that he would have to go to Lahore the coming week to visit his ailing mother.

(‘must’ is sometimes not changed and sometimes changed into ‘would have to’. Please visit the link given in this post to clarify this)

6) The policeman advised/warned the pedestrian not to cross the road against the red light.

7) Ahmad said, “Is it really true what I say?”

8) Sara asked, “Where will we be tomorrow at three O’clock?”

When the sentence is in interrogative form, always put question mark at the end in place of full stop.
