    Good afternoon,


    May I say what are you up to ? or what have you been up to ?

    THank you,

    CLaude.
    Greetings Claude,
    Yes, you may say either of these. 'What are you up to?' is equivalent to 'What are you doing?' but has a broader range, as it may refer to both actions and thoughts.

    cheers,
    Cuchu

    The difference between the two questions is that the first refers to now and the second refers to an indeterminate amount of time leading up to now.
