    "understand the questions and provide answers that make sense"

    Don't you mean "understand the answers and provide the questions that make sense"?

    Meh! Question answering systems are much dumber than they look. The sad truth is that statistical methods and Google-style brute force processing are very effective. "Critical thinking" has nothing to do with it!

    "Don't you mean "understand the answers and provide the questions that make sense"?"

    Don't you mean "Understand the answers and provide the questions that are right"? It can't win if all it's doing is "making sense"!
