Sometimes the numbers are green (guess that means that there is at least one answer to a question). Sometimes the background of the number is also green. Sometimes the background of the entire field of a question (plus the stats) is yellow.

What the heck do all those colours mean? I checked the help, but couldn't find an explanation. Can someone give me some pointers, pls.?

what's with the colours
