    question mark

    "Wow, you're 25!!! Getting long in the tooth, are we?"

    I don't know if there should be a question mark or a period at the end of the second sentence. My instinct tells me to use a question mark. Which is correct?

    Thanks.

    Yes, it finishes with a question and, therefore, requires a question mark.
