What is the purpose of question marks. In most cases, at least in all languages using interrogative pronouns, it's very clear from the syntax that an expression is meant to be a question. Also, the fact that a question mark is at the end of the sentence makes it pretty useless anyway. An interrogative meaning would need to be indicated at the very start, this is by interrogative pronouns. What do you think. Is it necessary.

Some questions can seem like statements so they are useful for clarity.

Can't imagine any. Challege for sci/, find questions that absolutely need a question mark in order to make sense.
