"Are you also a doctor?"

How does one learn the word order? I wrote "you are also a doctor ? " and that is wrong. Why?

Ye3 has to go after the subject and before the verb. It's just the rules. https://resources.allsetlearning.com/chinese/grammar/The_%22also%22_adverb_%22ye%22

Maybe beacause that sounds like you are telling that, that is an statement

You need to pay some attention. Chinese language is far more difficult to learn than any other spoken languages. Give it some time and practice, you will enjoy the learning. :-)

I myself am just a beginner, but I have already learned a few useful things. Here are a couple of tips. 1. In Chinese, tones are used for individual syllables, not entire sentences. For example, if you were to ask a question in English, your voice would probably raise a bit at the end. In Chinese, your voice would climb on a syllable using the 2nd tone, indicated by the é accent mark. 2. Verbs aren't conjugated in Chinese. You just say it as it is. I hope I was helpful

I wrote the exact correct answer, but it did not get accepted and I got "wrong answer". I did put the Question mark" at the end of my answer, and noticed that in another case I had written without the question mark at the end and my answer had gotten accepted . Could there be an issue with taking into account final punctuation ? I am on chrome browser 65.0.3325.209 (Official Build) (64-bit)

In English this sentence can have two implied meanings.

Are you also a doctor? (Like me) And Are you also a doctor? (As well as a musician)

Does this sentence have both meanings in Mandarin?

It said I was wrong because I didn't use a certain symbol but that symbol isn't there

Maybe because you are telling an statement if you say it in that way. At the begin I was confussed with that too.
