A black hole. As you take away mass, there's less gravity so it will expand and get bigger.

I think it is life.

Here is why:

From our birth we begin to move towards death. This movement towards death is time taken away from our life. The more time we live the longer our life gets but the further from life we move.

A black hole. Not a hole. The two are quite different, even though it has the word "hole" in it.

it is not a hole because you're not taking away soil you would be taking away the hole


I think the answer is nothing because if you take something away from nothing it becomes something and if nothing becomes something then it is more than it was originally

For those claiming it is not a hole.. What if the OP were reversed? What gets smaller as you add to it? Then does a hole work then as the answer? And for those that claim it is a negative number - which is a larger number, -10 or -11? I would say as you "take away" from a negative number you do not get a larger number (or for that matter a larger negative number - in that -10 is a larger number than -11 and both are negative numbers.)

You can't take away mass from a black hole.
