    Yesterday night changes to last night in indirect form.So i think there is no need to change last night to earlier night.

    Last night will change into the previous night or the night before.
    Correct answer must be (B), since neither of the above is given in answers.

    But we should change the phrase 'last night' to 'earlier night'. As we know that 'last night' should be change to 'the previous night' or 'the night before'.
    Here both options are missing. So earlier night is better solution, because 'earlier' is similar to previous.
    So option (B) is better

    Questions which can be answered in YES/NO.

    To change questions (which can be answered in yes or no) into indirect speech, word if or whether is used before the question in indirect speech. Rules for change in tense of question sentences are same as for change in normal tenses in indirect speech but sentence will not start with the auxiliary verb of the tense. The word that is not used between reporting verb and reported speech as conjunction in indirect speech for question sentence. Question mark is not used in indirect speech.

    Examples:

    Direct speech: He said to me, "do you like music?"
    Indirect Speech: He asked me if I liked music. (Not, did I like music) Or
    Indirect Speech: He asked me whether I liked music.

    Direct speech: She said, "Will he participate in the quiz competition?"
    Indirect Speech: She asked me if he would participate in quiz competition.

    Direct speech: I said to him, "are you feeling well?"
    Indirect Speech: I asked him if he was feeling well.

    Direct speech: They said to me, "did u go to school?"
    Indirect Speech: They asked me if I had gone to school.

    Direct speech: He said to me, "Have you taken the breakfast?"
    Indirect Speech: He asked me if I had taken the breakfast.

    This answer is incorrect. It should not be "the last night" but instead, "the previous night"
