But you don't actually take away from the hole. You take away from whatever the hole is in.

No. I understand why people would say hole, but it isn't a correct answer.

I dont know how you work that one out?!!!
If you add to a hole then it increases and if you take away from a hole it increases, unless ur gonna be fussy about little details then that is the correct answer.

If you add to the hole itself, it decreases. You can't take away from the hole itself, because its nothing there to take away from. You can take away from whatever the hole is in, but then you aren't taking away from the hole.
Its not a detail, its fact.

I dont think you have a very good imagination coz the question wasn't based on fact but more theory! You are gonna have to open your mind to suggestion at some point! I aint gonna bother debating coz there's no point. So im just gonna agree to disagree.

The question isn't about imagination, or fact or theory. Its about interpretation i suppose. I interpret that a hole is a hole, and it has to be in something. The only way to make the hole bigger is to change what the hole is in, by removing it in this case.
I know it doesn't matter, but that means that it does, because its something trivial that needs to be set straight.
