Hello damtruong1980,

We're happy to help our users with questions like this from time to time, but please tell us what you think the answer is and why first. Then we can help you help better.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello damtruong1980,

Great -- thanks for writing such a complete answer! And yes, D is the best answer -- as you say, none of the other three are appropriate, as they answer more a question like 'What are you doing?'. 'I'm doing well' is informal or neutral, so it is appropriate in this context.

I'm not sure if this will interest you or not, but if you want to learn more of this kind of language, our Big City Small World series has lots of conversations between friends and would be a good way of seeing lots of different examples.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello damtruong1980,

I was pleased to read that you were happy with the answer, and you're welcome! We're happy to answer specific questions from time to time, so please don't hesitate to ask again. It's always best to explain what you have a question about so that we can see how you understand it -- just like you did in your last comment.

I'm afraid we aren't able to provide corrections of texts, however, as that would take more time than we have.

We look forward to seeing you again.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Yes, I have.
