Is it right to say "How about you?"

Someone asks me the question “how old are you?” and answer “I’m 22 y.o.”. Is it right to say “How about you?” to return the same question to him/her?


Yes, that would be all right. You could simply say: And you?

‘How about …’ is often used to ask a more general question about what the other person thinks, feels, wants to do and so on.

Question: I’d like to go swimming. How about you?


thanks for your reply Alan.
