"sont vos parents docteurs" was not accepted. I agree that "médecins" is the preferred word in French fordoctors, but then why did Duolingo in this lesson consistently use "docteurs?" I reported this as an error and would suggest that the preferred word in French "médecins" be substituted in the lesson.
I'm afraid you've used an English construction for your French sentence. There are three basic question forms you can use here:
- Vos parents sont médecins ?
- Est-ce que vos parents sont médecins ?
- Vos parents sont-ils médecins ?
D'ailleurs, "médecin" and "docteur" are both accepted here. If you see an exercise where either term is not accepted, please feel free to report if context allows. And there are no other mistakes in your sentence.
Duolingo may seem to have used "docteur" consistently in your lesson because Duolingo randomly chooses sentences from our list, in which we currently have more prompt sentences with "docteur" than "médecin." Luck of the draw, mostly.
