Hello everyone.
One of my friends told me something interesting.
Do british prefer anybody and everybody to anyone and everyone??
If so, Is there any reason??
Thank you.

    English, U.S.
    In both BE and AE, the forms with "-one" are more frequent in published books than those with "-body",
    according to the Ngram Viewer.
    I suspect the forms with "-body" are more frequent in colloquial speech, but it's not a strict division.
