Maybe It would be difficult to learn the different greetings depending on the time of the day. The clue is remember that Early Good Morning is like Good Night in the end “-shang4hao3” and only changes the first part. The other clue is seeing that the other Good Mornings and Good Afternoon have “-wu3hao3” at the end. So only try to remeber this two rules and, logically, the respective part of the word.
