Asking "Why"

Helen,

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?
