"Dad and mom?"

The ו can be pronounced in three different ways, depending on the vowel marks (which are rarely shown on Duolingo, only to clarify alternate spellings). A plain ו makes the "v". One with a dot in the middle (וּ) makes an "oo" sound like "glue". One with a dot on top (וֹ) makes an "oh" sound like "no".
Why, I think it is a yes-and-no question. (What other answer can there be, if this is a question?)
If I were DL I think I'd accept it, but it does sound strange - האם is formal, while it's hard to think of "?אבא ואמא" in a formal setting - due to both the partial sentence and the less-than-formal words אבא and אמא.
