Example 1:

Patsy: Did you? How was it?
Bryan: It was very fun.

Example 2:
Martha: Did you go out last night?
Jeremy: Yes, we did. We went for a meal.
Martha: Where did you go?
Jeremy: To the new pizzeria on the corner.
Martha: How was it?
Jeremy: The food was good, but it was expensive!

Example 3:
Bryan: I didn't see you at the meeting yesterday.
Patsy: No, I had an exam.
Bryan: Did you? How was it?
