In this paper, we present a question- answering system on the Web which aims at generating intelligent answers to numer- ical questions. These answers are gener- ated in a cooperative way: besides a direct answer, comments are generated to ex- plain to the user the variation of numerical data extracted from the Web. We present the content determination and realisation tasks. We also present some elements of evaluation with respect to end-users.
