When you ask the question "Why" in Chinese, it seems that it is ok to say, for example: 你为什么学中文. If you just simply wanted to ask "Why?" do you still use 为什么. For example, if someone says: A: 你应该学中文 And another person responds B: 为什么？ I seem to remember reading somewhere that there is a slightly different way to ask "Why" in this context. Is this true?
