Someone asks me "are you angry?" when talking with me.
I don't understand what is "angry".
When it is talking, which of the following sentenceS will you say?
What is angry?
What is meant by angry?
What is the meaning of angry?
What do you mean about angry?
I believe he means 'When it is talking/speaking' as opposed to being in writing.
Yes, number three, if you don't know the meaning of the word angry.
If you know what 'angry' means, but you don't know why the person you are talking to thinks you are angry, you could say, 'What do you mean by 'angry'?', or, 'What makes you say that?'

You can also say 'What does angry mean?'
