Kak dela? Kak pozhyvaesh? Kak pozhyvaete?...


Explanation:
"Kak dela?" is the most frequently used in everyday language (more like "What's up?")

"Kak pozhyvaesh?" (singular, informal)
and
"Kak pozhyvaete?" (plural or formal) are also used = "How's life?", "How have you been?"

"Kak ty?" (singular, informal) and
"Kak vy" (plural or formal) imply greater closeness.
