Well, in English, adjectives will routinely precede the nouns which they modify; however, in Romanian, like other Romance languages, adjectives generally follow the nouns which they modify. As such, the word order between the two statements just has to be reversed. Although, the order of only the adjectives doesn't necessarily need to change, so they remain in the same order between the two sentences.
Unfortunately, some languages use only context and intonation as the primary difference between indicative and interrogative statements, at least yes-no questions. I mean, that's how Spanish works. However, I do not know if Romanian uses any other method for such questions.
