    Question correct response.

    Hello! Good day to everyone! I would just like to know the correct response when somebody tells you
    "Have a nice day!" Should it be:
    "Have a nice day too!" Or is there a better way to reply?

    My other question is, when should the following words be used? Are there any conditions that should be met or satisfied in applying each of them in a sentence? Please give me examples for each so that I would be able to distinguish based in context! Thank you very much!
    1. anyone 2. someone 3. anybody 4. somebody

    With respect to your first question.. I usually say "thanks, you too". This is probably the most common response here in "my" part of Canada, friendly and informal.

    Not a teacher.

    This is a completely separate question. Please ask it in a separate thread to avoid the confusion that often happens when different people answer different questions in one thread.

    But before doing that, please do some research. There are plenty of internet sites offering their explanations of the problem.
