Which one is correct? "How is going" or "How is it going". I googled it but it seemed both are in use. Am I right with this point?

  • I'd like to see you elaborate a little on finding them both in use. (The first one is not in use, insofar as I know.) – J.R. Sep 9 '14 at 14:56
  • Since there are Chinese bloggers explaining these two, so I am not sure about whether they are wrong or these two sentences are in use. :) – Megadeth Sep 9 '14 at 14:58
  • Including some excerpts and links in your question would make this a more interesting question. It would probably also help those who might want to attempt to answer. – J.R. Sep 9 '14 at 14:59
  • I do see mainly Chinese(?) using the word. If the first handful of Google hits on an English sentence are Chinese, chances are the phrase is not (commonly) used by native speakers of English. – oerkelens Sep 9 '14 at 15:20

    "Who is going to lead the invasion of New York?" King George asked. "Howe is going," his aide replied. – Jay Sep 9 '14 at 21:02
How is it going?

is the correct form, although it is usually abbreviated to How's it going? Dropping the it from the sentence makes it unclear what is being asked.
