Antworten is intransitive (doesn't need an object), whereas beantworten is transitive. Thus: Er hat noch nicht geantwortet - He hasn't answered yet. -but- Er hat meine Frage noch nicht beantwortet - He hasn't answered my question yet.

Er antwortet auf die Frage. Er beantwortet die Frage. That's pretty much it.
