What is the difference between following sentences ? Pls explain it to me.?

Ok, these are the sentences :-

1)"What are you doing ?"

and

2)"What you doing ?"

Some people don't add "are" in this type of sentences. Why ?

I heard sentence no.2 in so many movies and somtimes they also use "doin" instead of "doing." like this--> "what you doin."

    One is a complete sentence and one is broken english.

    The first sentence is grammatically correct and the proper use of English. The second sentence is slang and is not proper usage.

    The first one is proper English. The others are just lazy versions of it.

    "what are you doing?" sounds more formal. It's more polite.

    "what you doing?" sounds more angrier, like someone caught you in an act.

    They evidently mean the same thing, just different ways of saying it.

    They mean precisely a similar project. "I somewhat have many problems." the subsequent sentence encompasses a contraction--"i'm". So in case you stretch out the contraction, sentence #2 might examine: "i'm having many problems." So no difference wherein skill. :) you're doing truly nicely! save gaining expertise of.
