As the number of users who ask and give answers in the query-answer documents retrieval system is growing exponentially, the query-answer document become a crucial information resource, as a new type of information retrieval service. A query-answer document Consists of three structural parts : a query, explanation on query, and answers Chosen by users who asked the query. To identify the role of each structural part in representing the topics of documents, the three structural parts were clustered automatically and the results of several clustering tests were compared in this study.
