    When you ask "What is it?", you are asking someone to identify what something is. Is it a book? Is it a chair? Is it a necklace? If someone says something like "I feel.... well..." where they haven't finished their sentence, you can also ask "What is it? What is it that you are feeling? Is it happiness? Fear? Sadness?"

    "What's up?" means "How are you?" in slang.
