    A) May flowers bring more flowers next may
    B) It is 20m deep, not 20mm. Get it right.
    C) It would depend on where the survivors chose/were forced to live for the rest of thier lives, or maybe back to switzerland. Nobody wants a ground full of swiss people.

    No, the answer for b is that there is no such thing as half a hole; every indentation (hole) in the ground is a hole. No such thing as half of one.

    Disagree.

    You ask "how deep is half the (20m) hole?" Deep implies from top to bottom. A hole is a void, space, and one can draw an imaginary line down the center of the hole, each half is 20m deep. Anything can be halved, even voids.
