    Please correct and explain why:

    It's unusual to put a stress at the end of a sentence unless it is a question one.

    Re: sentence's voice

    Speakers rarely stress the end of a sentence, unless it is a question.

    Speakers rarely use rising intonation at the end of a sentence, unless it is a question.
    Note that, English has a number of intonation patterns which add conventionalized meanings to the utterance: question, statement, surprise, disbelief, sarcasm, teasing. Read more here Intonation

    You can remove 'one', because a question is already a type of sentence.
