In this study, we describe An Arabic Question Answering(QA) system based on data mining approach. The system employs text mining techniques to determine the likely answers to factoid questions. It depends mainly on the use of lexical information and does not apply any complex language processing tools such as named entity recognizers, parsers and ontologies. The system achieved an accuracy of 61.5%.
