    Greeting

    At the beginning of conversation, people often say:
    - How are you doing?
    - how's it going?
    - what's going on?
    - what's up?
    - what are you doing now?
    - Are you doing Ok?
    Could you tell me the usage and meaning of these questions?
    What question we often say in formal situation and informal situation?
