Equally necessary is it that the mental and bodily faculties should be considered before apprenticeship.

Your answer was: correct
_________________________

Hello,

This sentence of test Question 6 does not seem like an interrogative sentence because there is no question mark at the end of the sentence even though the subject and verb are inverted. Could you please verify this ambiguity?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
