Anonymous:A. Anybody wants cookies? = (Is there) anybody (who) wants cookies?
B. Anybody want cookies? = (Does) anybody want cookies?
Are the two sentences above correct? Or can we say them in less formal conversations?
Can we also say that A is a declarative statement made into a question by simply changing the intonation?
B is used informally, but the complete sentence is, as you say, "Does anybody want cookies?"

Anonymous:Thank you so much for your answer.
If I say:
Anybody who wants cookies?
Is this acceptable?
That is a noun phrase.
Anybody who wants cookies should come on over!
