Similarly it happen in the following cases also

  • @noufal What are you trying to express? Given that they both end in question marks, neither is correct usage. – Matt E. Эллен Oct 21 '13 at 10:26

The first is ungrammatical. The second is grammatical, but the question mark should be replaced with a full stop.
