I cheated by looking at KediNero´s first answer as I haven´t studied how to form reported speech.

Question about #1.

I thought first word would be yemek + his = Yemeği

Yemeğini looks like Yemek + his + object? I thought yediğini was the object, can you have 2?

True. Yemeği is his food. 

But then you need to add ( sadly I don´t know what they´re called) one of direction articles like -a, -den or -i, so you need a buffer letter which is n here because two vowels can not follow each other.

Yemek + i [his/her meal] + n [buffer]+ i [accusative marker]

So, it is accusative mark for the verb -to eat [-yemek]

-----------------------------------------

yedik + i + n [buffer] + i [accusative marker for the verb -söylemek]

----------------------------------------

So, there are actually two verbs and each has own object, however if we look the whole concept as a compound sentence there is actually one object which is :

Yemeğini çoktan yediğini 

[O  ]         Yemeğini çoktan yediğini        söyledi.

HIDDEN          OBJECT                                MAIN VERB 

SUBJECT

Tunci hocam, I really appreciate reading your tests and answers, and I look carefully at them to check and learn.

In this answer I though the ´eme´ part means couldn´t

Bu akşam geleyeceklerini söylediler.

They said they could come tonight.

I want to check with you, as I´m not sure.
