In my book there is an example of reported question:
"What will you do tomorrow?" - She asked me what I would be doing the next day.

I am wondering if the sentence can be put this way: She asked me what I would do the next day.

Are both options possible and if yes, then is there any difference in meaning between these sentences?

    Tunaafi is right, of course :thumbsup: - when you shift back tenses in reported speech, you retain, if possible, the other aspects. Future simple to future in the past (simple); future continuous to future continuous in the past.
