Overdue brain teasers

I haven't done brain teasers in a while, so here are a few to get us back on track:________________________ 1. How much mud (measured in liters) is there in a rectangular hole 2 meters wide, 3 meters long, and 3 meters deep?_______________________________ 2. What two two-digit numbers are each equal to their right-most digit squared?______________________ 3. Each of the following words contains the letters NOV (There may be more than one of each of those letters, but they are not shown.) ______________________ Using the definitions, fill in the words. _____________ A dispute or argument: _ _ N _ _ OV_ _ _ _.________ An astronomical feature: _ _ _ _ _ NOV_.__________ New or original: _ _ NOV_ _ _ _ _._______________ 4. What special quality does this limerick possess?_____ When an expert burlesque queen named Maizy, _____ Stripping velvet, became very lazy,______________ She would quickly exhibit just one jeweled explicit,__ Gliding off from the jokesters like crazy.__________ There, that should keep you busy for a while.________ And sorry for the lines, my layout is acting weird.

1. Assuming that the hole is a whole hole and not a half or partial whole, the whole hole should be empty. Therefore no mud.
2. 25 and 36
3. Controversy, Supernova, Innovative
4. the alphabet is there three times

Carrie-
Correct. There is no mud in an empty hole.
Mike-
Correct, correct, correct, and correct.
How did you figure all of those out?
Does the army need to give you more work to keep you busy?
