A square does not have a volume and this question reflects very poorly on the quality of your site!

The square has a volume, and it's zero for all squares

A square is made up of planes; planes have no volume; therefore a square has no volume; and so the "volume" of a square is always going to be 0 cubic units!

I don't think Teacher asked the the question because he/she doesn't know his/her job but I think simply to stimulate thought, logical review and interest.

Square does not have volume because planes have no volume.
