A context describes the surroundings for a sentence.

Without context, questions can be meaningless.

For example:

Who is President?

is meaningless unless the country is specified. The country in this case is the context.

She said/says she was sorry

completely depends on the context of the statement, i.e. the current situation in the rest of the text.
