Superfluous surely? Not semantics.
#2
That's a pleonasm - 'absolutely' doesn't need to be there.
#3
Depends on what you're talking about? What needs to be "precise"?

Precise

pre·cise
   /prɪˈsaɪs/ Show Spelled[pri-sahys] Show IPA
–adjective
1.definitely or strictly stated, defined, or fixed: precise directions.
2.being exactly that and neither more nor less: a precise temperature; a precise amount.
3.being just that and no other: the precise dress she had wanted.
4.definite or exact in statement, as a person.
5.carefully distinct: precise articulation.
6.exact in measuring, recording, etc.: a precise instrument.
7.excessively or rigidly particular: precise observance of regulations; precise grooming.


Absolutely precise is tautological, an example of redundancy.
