There are fewer people answering than there are people asking questions.

Also from a purely philosophical point of view, you cannot have answers without questions, so the amount of answers must always be less-than-or-equal-to the number of questions.

Everything on WikiAnswers is a work in progress. We're not a site that posts finished versions of questions & answers. == == Naturally, there will always be more questions than answers. More people ask questions than answer them, and many questions haven't been answered yet. Moreover, some questions are unanswerable. Since you can ask anything here, there is no guarantee that someone can answer you. And keep in mind that people who contribute answers are ordinary people who log in to see what kinds of interesting things people are asking. There is no assigned paid staff handling questions in any kind of systematic way. Volunteer Supervisors do their best to keep topics in order as they can spare the time to do it. Many questions don't have enough information to be answered. For example, "How old do you have to be to buy alcohol in a retail outlet?" needs to include a country and/or state (or province). The correct answers vary from one country and place to another.

Because there are more questions than there are answers, we do our best to answer them all, however, it will take time, but with time there comes more questions!

WikiAnswers is a large site and there are more than 16 million questions. Your question gets answered if a contributor notices it and answers it.

If you mean 'Does the Internet have better answers than WikiAnswers?', then that question depends on what type of question you are talking about. The Internet may have some better answers to questions than WikiAnswers, but I would highly recomend WikiAnswers because WikiAnswers is a Q & A site, (Questions and Answers) but the Internet is not. So if your wondering about which one is better, the answer is WikiAnswers. Hope I answered your question!
