What is wrong with "sunteti avocat?" (apart from missing ts sign which I cannot write)

"Sunteți avocat?" should work for "dumneavoastră", which is the polite form of you. Report it.

Same for me -- reported -- "voi sunteti un avocat". It's the same as the suggested "Tu ești un avocat?" except for the formal versus informal

Okay.. now I'm ticked off. On the second time up for this question... I reasoned that if I'm asking someone if they're a lawyer then I don't know them very well, and therefore I should not be using the familiar form, and therefore "sunteti un avocat" should be correct. But that got marked wrong.

And here I am a third time around with the same issue.
