Sometimes the whole/hole homophone pair is exploited in spoken (not written) riddles. They might be saying, "take away the hole."

Another possibility is "infinity" whereby an infinite number of objects can be removed from an infinite set to leave behind a still-infinite set. This would be a dodgy stretch of meaning for "whole."
