So, someone walks up to you and says, "How are you?"

You must respond! Time is running out! (And, incidentally, the robotic response of "Fine, thanks. And you?" is forbidden.)

You must choose between:

A) I'm well.

and

B) I'm good.

Which do you choose? And why? Do you feel as if one of the responses is wrong grammatically? If so, which one, and why?

I am good.

I am doing well.

I am good.

I am doing well.

Yes, I know good is an adjective and well is an adverb but I heard that ''I'm well'' is a common response to the question how are you

I'm in favor of you, Gencebay. Well is used instead of good to mean "in good health"
any other opinion????
Very well, that's the correct way defenetelly

In selected usage, actually "good" (or any adjective) can be considered as an adverb. i.e. You look really good / nice today, the song you just performed sounded wonderful/ good as well.

I can't remember ever having heard someone say "I'm well" as a response to the greeting "How are you?"
