    **not a teacher**

    1) It was a funny argument( Can any other word be used instead of funny)

    As we say in the States, do you mean funny-haha or funny-strange? Funny-haha would make you laugh because it is humorous or even hilarious. Funny-strange would make you feel uncomfortable because there was something odd, or not quite right about it. You could use either "humorous" or "strange" to replace funny in that sentence.

    2) what are you going to major in for/in TY (THIRD YEAR,Its means gradutation in India)

    Some options would be-
    What are you going to major in during TY?
    What is your TY major going to be?
    What are you majoring in for TY?

    All of which give the idea that your third year major might differ from your second year major. If that is not the case you might just say "What subject are you going to major in?" or "What will your major be?".
