Can someone just tell me the difference between 'How about you' and 'What about you'.
If someone asks me 'how are you', is it wrong to say "Am fine. How about you"
Thanks in advance.
It could depend on the circumstance. Let's say you and your friend are running from an erupting volcano or a big grizzly bear. Once you escape and make it to safey, your friend could say "Are you okay?" and then you could say, "Yeah, I'm all right. How about you?".
In other situations, the better reply to "How are you?" would simply be, "Good, and you?".
