Solution

The correct option is D I advised her not to wait for me if I was late.

The two ways of relating what a person has said are 1)direct and 2)indirect (reported).

In the direct speech, the exact words of the original speaker are repeated.

In the indirect speech (reported speech), the exact meaning of what the speaker told is expressed but not necessarily in the speaker’s exact words.

Option D is correct as the sentence in the inverted commas is in the simple present tense and the appropriate introductory verb 'advised' is used with the appropriate preposition 'to' after 'not'.

Options A, B, and C are wrong as 'am', 'do' and 'requested' cannot be used respectively. 

The correct answer is D)I advised her not to wait for me if I was late.
