Great points! I also like using ‘good’ as ‘no’ -> Do you want anymore pizza? No, I’m good.

That’s a really good point, Ashwini! It’s tricky because language changes a lot faster than the rule books do! It’s super common to hear “native speakers” say things like “Hey, you dance pretty good!” or “I did good on the exam.” Technically, they’re grammatically incorrect, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not used.

Although good is an adjective and well is an adverb. we can use them interchangeably in one sentence ie I am doing good or I am doing well. Lets not get confused with this. Doing good is a fixed phrase so it does not make any difference in that sentence.
