4. What is the largest possible number you can write using only 2 digits - just 2 digits, nothing else?
I'd argue that there is no largest possible number you can write using only 2 digits, since the base hasn't been specified. For instance, in a hexadecimal base, f^f > 9^9. And of course you could come up with any arbitrary base-x number system and make arbitrarily larger numbers using only two digits.

Yes, and using all sorts of other definitions of "digit" besides just "0 to 9" we can interpret it in even more ways. The case of non-decimal numeric bases was addressed. My Webster has a few more definitions.

Def. #3: a finger or toe.

Using only ONE digit I can write pretty much whatever I want in the sand. Let me loose with TWO of them now and watch out!

Def. #4: the breadth of a finger used as a unit of linear measure, usu. equal to 3/4 of an inch (2 cm).

Using only 1.5 inches or 4 cm, I can write whatever will fit in this space.

My guess was 22

When the two planes meet, they are nose to nose, so the tail end of the Paris plane is closer, hence it is closer.

Depends on your definition of "meet"

These questions are far too subjective
