Add subject or NOT????

When we say 他告诉他的爸爸ABC /他问他爸爸ABC I think sometimes we have to add subject and sometimes you omit. Can someone explain about this process? When can you omit and when do you have to add? 在那个情况下/什么时候省略主语呢???


高文中告诉医生他肚子疼死了
我告诉他吃药
医生问他他发不发烧
医生问他他有没有发烧?
他问我我想不想去她家。
他告诉我我应该走。。。等等

    这个嘛,多看多练多说吧。
    当你在转述别人的话时,后面从句的主语就可以省略。中文中确实存在很多不需要用到主语的句子。主要是因为这个主语在先前的句子中提到过了。

    the subject could be omitted
    But the meaning of sentence may be different.

    for intance:我告诉他吃药

    我告诉他(我)吃药
    他:what are you doing?
    我:i take the medicine.

    我告诉他(他)吃药
    i told him that he should take the medicine.= i told him to take the medicine.
