Solution

The correct option is C I will see you tomorrow

The two ways of relating what a person has said are 1)direct and 2)indirect (reported speech).In direct speech, the original speaker's exact words are repeatedIn indirect/reported speech, the exact meaning is expressed but not necessarily using the original speaker's exact words. Pronouns and possessive adjectives usually change from first or second person to the third person except when the speaker is reporting his own words. Sometimes a noun can be inserted to avoid doubt.

When we turn direct questions and exclamations into indirect speech, they are converted to affirmative statement .( ? and ! is not used).

Option B is correct as when we convert the given indirect speech to direct, would is changed to will , she to I ,and the next day to tomorrow.

 The other options are wrong as you will, she will, and see me can't be used.

The correct answer is B)I will see you tomorrow
