Leak Information?

Let a,b,c,d be selected at random from $\mathbb Z^*_q$. We pick values $r_1,r_2,r_3,z_1,z_2,z_3 \gets \mathbb Z^*_q$. Do $u_1,u_2$ that are computed as follows, leak information about values $a,b,c,d$...

If a probabilistic encryption algorithm is used, how does decryption return the correct message?

Given a key $k$ and a plaintext $p$, a deterministic encryption algorithm will return a ciphertext $c_1$. In a second trial, I run the same key and plaintext $p$ through the encryption algorithm and ...

Is there an additive homomorphic encryption that supports exponentation

For example say we have two numbers a and b. Now is there any partial homomorphic encryption scheme that allows to compute (a-b)^2 over the ciphertexts of a and b without round trips.
