Question about Indonesian

Why do I need “seorang” in this sentence? — “Apakah Anda seorang pilot?” (Are you a pilot?)
This exercise was given by Duolingo, and my answer without “seorang” was rejected by Duolingo... I know what “seorang” means. “Orang” is “person” and the prefix “se-“ is “one”. So, basically “a/one person” is the meaning of “seorang”. But I don’t simply understand why I cannot omit “seorang” in this sentence. Is omitting “seorang” grammatically incorrect? With or without “seorang” changes the nuance?
