This “bunk” is short for “bunkum,” a simplified spelling of “Buncombe,” a county in North Carolina.
In 1820, Representative Felix Walker, whose district included Buncombe County (Ashville Metro area), rose on the floor of the US House of Representatives to address the debate of the day, the famous Missouri Compromise. As Walker began to speak, it became clear that what he was saying had nothing to do with the issue at hand and was, in fact, irrelevant nonsense. Also, he refused to stop. Challenged by his colleagues, Walker replied that his constituents expected him to “make a speech for Buncombe”, and started yammering again. As a result, “Buncombe,” later “bunkum” and simply “bunk,” became national shorthand for “nonsense.”

Square Biz is WRONG. In the world of slang "square" means uncool. So anything "square" in the world of slang is a bad thing. Furthermore, "square biz" is not a slang term. it's the title of a song by Tina Marie released in 1980. (Not the 70s.) So on top of being misused/misrepresented here, it doesn't even belong in this quiz of slang terms from the 70s.

They only time that I have ever heard Bogart used, when somebody would just keep the joint and not share it. Did it mean something else?

It was explained after you answered the question.

15/17 - Never heard of Square Biz. Did Teena Marie have a song of something?

Bogart I always thought was being cool 😎 after Humphrey Bogart.
