Much research for question-answering aims to answer factiod, definitional and biographical questions. In most cases, the answers are given as a name, date, quantity, and so on. In this paper, we try to merge techniques of multidocument summarization and question-answering to generate a brief, well-organized fluent summary to provide more relevant information for the purpose of answering real-world complicated questions. The problem is addressed as a query-biased sentence retrieval task. We propose a hybrid relevance analysis to evaluate the relevance of a sentence to the query. The summary is created by including sentences with the topmost significances which are measured in terms of sentence relevance and surface feature salience. In addition, a modified Maximal Marginal Relevance is proposed for anti-redundancy. The proposed approach was evaluated with the DUC 2005 corpus and found to perform well with competitive results.
