ANYTHING?

This is correct. It is used to ask a question.

Use "anything?" when you want to ask a question or inquire about something.

Examples:

  • Do you need anything?
  • Is there anything I can help you with?

Alternatives:

  • Is there anything you need?
  • Do you want anything?

ANYTHING.

This is correct. It is used to make a statement or express surprise.

Use "anything." to make a statement or express surprise about a situation.

Examples:

  • I didn't expect anything.
  • She didn't say anything.

Alternatives:

  • I didn't expect that.
  • She didn't say a word.
Both "anything?" and "anything." are correct, but they are used in different contexts. "Anything?" is used to ask a question, while "anything." is used to make a statement or express surprise. They are not directly comparable as they serve different purposes.
