Can't I say "ubi viri sunt"?

It is a valid translation - report it and the Contributors will update if they agree.

I have just realised however, that the course appears to put the verb immediately after ubi in questions, rather than at the end.

Yeah, that seems to be the case, but i couldn't find any information to corroborate that the word order of question words should be Int./Ver./Obj..

For yes-no questions.

Suntne viri domi? Are the men at home?

What's up with "Livia viri ubi sunt?" Perhaps wrong word order?
