A querying tone?

A querying tone?

The lesson states, "Just as in English, you can state something with a querying tone..." but none of the above examples sound like questions to me. They all sound like flat statements. The voice does not rise at the ends of these questions like it would in English. Is a "querying tone" different in French?

Merci beaucoup Melisa !

Indeed, these voices were not really inquisitive :(

Thanks to you, it's now been updated!

Bonne journée !
