    1. Yes, that is normal if a) your tasks are "manually scheduled," which is the default behavior out of the box; or b) your tasks are "automatically scheduled," but you have manually entered a date for the last task.
    2. The question mark indicates that the duration is "estimated."  When you create a task, Project automatically enters a default duration (typically 1 day) and applies the question mark to emphasize that no human has confirmed the estimated value.  If you modify the duration, the question mark goes away. You can also remove it by unchecking the "estimated" box on the General Tab of the Task Information dialog, or by inserting the "Estimated" field/column in a task table and directly modifying the values there.

    Good luck, tom
