A Feature-based Classification Technique for Answering Multi-choice World History Questions

by   Shuangyong Song, et al.

Our FRDC_QA team participated in the QA-Lab English subtask of the NTCIR-11. In this paper, we describe our system for solving real-world university entrance exam questions, which are related to world history. Wikipedia is used as the main external resource for our system. Since problems with choosing right/wrong sentence from multiple sentence choices account for about two-thirds of the total, we individually design a classification based model for solving this type of questions. For other types of questions, we also design some simple methods.
