There are three different ways of asking a person's age, depending on how old you think they look!

nǐ jǐ suì / 你 几 岁 - How old are you? (for someone younger than 10)

nǐ duō dà / 你 多 大 - How old are you? (for someone older than 10)

nín lǎo gāo shòu / 您 老 高 寿 - How old are you? (for an elderly person)
