It is important to avoid an awkward conversation with native English speakers. It is the time that you make sure how you can deal with it when someone asks you “how are you doing?”.
Some questions are like when you call a customer care executive for registering a sort of complaint and are asked “How can I help you? You are just confused to answer and formally reply as “Thanks, I am doing well!
The same happens when you are asked “How are you?” and you reply as usual that “I’m fine, What about you?”. In exchange for “How’s it going?”

Informal Answers “How Are You Doing?”
Normally the question “How are you going?” is not much used. Neither you listen to the other person saying it’s going! It’s even true not to ask nor to expect a revert as everyone is not going good.
1. “All Right”
Responding that you are “all right” is neutral, although it is more positive than “I m Fine”. The intonation of speaking can change the meaning slightly. “I’ m all right” has a positive effect, just like each word higher than the previous word. Each word is held longer than the previous one. In this context “I’m is the highest-pitched word, “all” drops in tone and “right” go up in step but it is lower than “I’m”.
“Good” is the most common answer. It is positive and polite in itself. Even if you are not feeling “good” when you answer it, it is an acquaintance for a stranger and a normal answer to give. Grammar often brings the word “good” so nicely that it won’t replace it.
Good is an adjective while well is an adverb. Good describes correct response while well describes an action.
Whenever someone asks you “How are you doing?” it should be answered as “I’m doing well”, in which doing is an action verb while “well” describes the action.
