“Why me?”
“Why not?”

These “sentences” are perfectly understandable, although a lot of words were omitted. This is a bit of a standard question and response.

Assuming a context, the full sentences might be:
“We chose you for this job.”
Why would you choose me?”
Why should we not choose you?”

The original text omits the obvious words while keeping the meaning. It’s also much more emphatic.
