The word "that" comes first to mind, but "why" or even "when"...but of course using different words changes the meaning of the sentence.

(1) "Mohan told his dad that he kept his watch on the table" means, more or less, that Mohan said "Dad, I routinely put my watch on the table to store it temporarily before I go to bed".
(2) "Mohan told his day why he kept his watch on the table" means, more or less, that Mohan explained to his Dad the reason why he [Mohan] put his [Mohan's] watch on the table to store it temporarily.
(3) "Mohan told his dad when he put his watch on the table" means, more or less, that Mohan put his watch on the table and immediately said to his dad, "Dad, I just put my watch on the table".

I daresay there are other possible words to put there.

"Mohan told his dad how he kept his watch on the table." - in a bag or box, ...
"Mohan told his dad whether he kept/put his watch on the table."
"Mohan told his dad where he kept/put his watch on the table." - It's a big table with a lot of things on.

Mohan told his dad now he kept his watch on the table. Before it had been in a draw or he has worn it.
Mohan told his dad Rifat he kept his watch on the table. This establishes the fathers name.
Mohan told his dad truthfully he kept his watch on the table. Mohan has been asked where he kept his watch and told the truth.
Mohan told his dad angrily he kept his watch on the table. He did not like being questioned about where he kept his watch.

There are many possible answers.

But not 'told to' his dad.

If that is your mistake, fine, you didn't copy the question correctly.

If that was there in the question then this is bad English and you must not use this resource.

Also, you don't keep something IN a table.
You may put it ON a table or IN a drawer under the table.

Also "Mohan" is a proper name and should have a capital letter.
Also sentences start with capital letters and end with full stops.
"You" is spelled "you" not "u".

Mohan told his dad _______ he kept his watch on the table.
If you know the answers just post the answers in the reply post.


As others have said, there are MANY possible words which fit in that space.
It doesn't even NEED a word.

Mohan told his dad he kept his watch on the table.

Ah, I didn't even see that part.


Yes, I must emphasise what Drago says about using "u".

Some people use it as a short code in texting, and it is fashionable to use it in some song titles. But it looks really bad to a lot of native speakers. You should only use it in extremely informal contexts like texting a mate.
For now, until your English is very good and you understand where you can use it, this is my strong advice -

do NOT use 'u' to mean you.
Not at all.
Never.


It will make people think you have never studied English and that you don't respect them enough to write properly.

I am sure that is not true about you. But that us what using 'u' tells the reader about you.
