Question mark usage

Hola,

I'm intrigued that the threats are interpreted with a question mark, rather than an exclamation mark. Are they interchangeable?

Gracias,

The question mark instead of an exclamation point struck me as well. Does someone have an explanation?

"I bet" rather than "Look out"......you'll fall.      Also curious about use of ? rather than ! in warning.

¿A que te caes?" means:(HINT: The situation is: the speaker is watching his child running downstairs)I told you you'd fall!Did you fall down?I bet you'll fall down!I wish you'd fall down!
