Would "Are the apples dirty or clean?" work as well?

No. This is formulated as a "choice" question, not as a question about the state of some apples.
"Are the apples dirty or clean?" - "Merele sunt murdare sau curate?"

Well they're both IE but very, very distant from each other.

could you please post it in Persian .Both languages are indeed Indo -European like Danielsugar says, but Persian belongs to the Oriental SATEM group( like Hindi,Urdu,Bengali, etc) whilst ROMANIAN belongs to the Occidental KENTUM group, with the exception of GREEK and ARMENIAN who are also IE, but isolates.
