Let $p$ be a prime and let $F$ be a free group of rank $d\geq 1$.
Kostrikin [1] proved that the $d$-generated Burnside group $B=B(d,p)=F/F^p$
of exponent $p$ has a maximal finite quotient
$\overline{B}=\overline{B(d,p)}=B/N$ where $N$ is the intersection of all
the subgroups of $B$ of finite index. I understand that Kostrikin proved
that the nilpotency class $c(d,p)$ of $\overline{B(d,p)}$ has an *upper bound*.

**Question 1:** Are *lower bounds* known for $c(d,p)$?

**Question 2:** Is $c(d,p)\geq d$ for $d\leq 4$ and $p>d$?

**Question 3:** For which $n$ is the $n$th section of the lower exponent-$p$
central series for $\overline{B(d,p)}$ isomorphic to the $n$th Lie power
$L^n(V)$ where $V=({\mathbb F}_p)^d$?
