Future in past = Would. Future in present = Will.

Hence, B.

I finally understand this grammar rule. Just one clarifying example from SC.

Here the option with "would" is appropriate considering past tense.
So, option B is the correct one.

I have query here
Its said once "that" is used then verb need to be present in its base form.

Will is base form not would

So should not the answer be A for above question
Can someone please explain this

Hello push12345,
I don't think we need base form verb after every "that".
In this sentence, the government spokesman announced something in past, but the spokesman told something about future in past. He told that some reforms would take place. This whole event happened in past and whenever we want to use future form in past events, we use "would" instead of "will".

I hope that I cleared your doubt.
Not an expert. We can argue.
