Question on Question Marks

Greetings,

I was wondering if I could get some help with punctuating a quoted question correctly. Does the question mark follow the quotation or the citation? If it follows the quotation, do I add a period after the citation? Here are some examples:

1. Dumbledore asks McGonagall, "Can’t you see how much better off he’ll be, growing up away from all that until he’s ready to take it” (Rowling 13).

Is this correct? Or is it this version:

2. Dumbledore asks McGonagall, "Can't you see how much better off he'll be, growing up away from all that until he's ready to take it?" (Rowling 13).

Are either of these correct? If not, I would appreciate any help.
