    Hi, I've been wondering the meaning of 你呢 in an exchange of this sort.

    A: 你回家了吗?
    B: 我去教室, 你呢

    Is B asking A the same initial question (whether s/he is going home) or is B rather asking if A is (also) going to the classroom? Thanks a lot,

    Mandarin 國語
    我去教室, 你呢? I'm going to the classroom. How about you (in this case meaning "Where are you going")?

    It's similar to the English expression "and you?" or just "You?"

    for your question, i have to indicate, the context is ambiguous.
    you should correct it as
    A: 你回家了吗?
    tranlated as
    A: did you go home?
    B:no, i went to classroom, and you/how about you/where did you go?

    B means, no, I went to the classroom ( for study or something what), and you?
