I learned from my Chinese course that “吗” is a modal word used at the end of a sentence to indicate a question, so “你好吗?” means “How are you?”

I know from this Chinese course that 你好 means “hello”, but I have come across another sentence: “你好吗”, what does it mean?

When someone asks: “你好吗?”, you can respond like this: “我很好,谢谢。I’m fine, thanks.”
