1. 早上好! Good morning?
It is an everyday greeting that is used only when people meet each other in the morning. The reply should also be "早上好!".

2. 你呢? What about you?
It is a question asked in connection with the preceding topic, e.g. "我身体很好,你呢?" which means I’m healthy, how are you?

3. When the same character is repeated as in the above example, the second one frequently adopts a neutral tone. So this word is made up of two characters, and it’s actually the same character said twice, both fourth tones meaning "thanks". 
    Now depending on where you are, you may hear the second word pronounced with a neutral tone giving us xièxie, rather than xièxiè . Additionally, you can also say a more polite "谢谢你" to mean "thank you" rather than just "谢谢" meaning “thanks”.
