"How are you?"
You can equally say "habari yako" to day how are you or just hujambo. I live in Tanzania and no one would say wewe hujambo.
Ive used Habari Gani and Habari Yako when in East Africa as theyre generally more used
Nivas, you could. Depending on whom you are addressing. Most of the time the greeting was just 'jambo' or' habari ya leo'. To which everyone answered 'mzuri, mzuri sana' and walked off.
"mambo" is informal and "jambo" is strictly for humouring tourists.
true as well in case of greeting! the singular/plural difference applies to the lexeme itself having many translations (like "matter", "condition", "fact"...)
"wewe hujambo" was not even an option. they said "wewe mzima?" ... is the correct answer . other options were >> "uko wavulana?" and "mhandisi wewe" ... how come? please help
I have heard "Wewe mzima?" (~zima refers to wholeness --> health) I have not heard the others and they were not shown to me, so Idk.
ZahidurRah1 - It sounds like you were looking at the question version with multiple choice word buttons. The other buttons are just random words:
uko = you are (in a place)
wavulana = boys/youths
mhandisi = engineer.
