How do you say "really" or "seriously" in spanish?

As an example, "really" used in this context:

"Is that a cat?"

"No it's a dog."


"Really." <-- I need to know how to say "really" as a reply. "Seriously" could work too.

    ¿En serio? - really(with a question mark) ?

    en serio - seriously

    "Is that a cat?" - Es que un gato?

    "No, it's a dog." -

    "¿En serio?" - when asking Really?

    "Realmente." - when answering Really.

    You use "Seriously" and "Really" as -En serio- when replying but -En serio- is 'Seriously' all the time.

    There are many different ways to say really or seriously. Seriously is "En serio?"

    When you're expressing doubt you should say de verdad? or de veras?

    When expressing interest: Ah, si?

    In surprise or disbelief: No me digas!

    In assurance: de verdad?

  • You can use "En serio".

    ¿Es ese un gato?

    No, es un perro

    ¿En serio?

    En serio

    Or "De verdad"
