Hi Guys, I submitted some useless URL's in the google webmaster for Removal but they denied my removal request & they simply said The content you submitted for cache removal appears on a live page. but I don't have any these kind of webpage's on my server & I don't know those web pages created crawl & index. Thoughts...?

Wow. I didn't know they really denied requests. I thought at worst they would remove the page and then pop it back a few weeks later.
The content you submitted for cache removal appears on a live page. but I don't have any these kind of webpage's on my server
I think you may have misunderstood what "live page" means. Maybe you're interpreting it as "dynamic". Live just means it's there and accessible-- but since when does google check that on the fly?
Oh, wait. Did you request only removal from the cache, not from SERPs or index in general?
:: detour to gwt to make sure it says what I remember ::
To remove a cached copy of a page, you must either add a meta noarchive tag to the page or change the content of the page. Generally, use the meta noarchive tag if you want the cache removal to be permanent, and change the content of the page if you want the cache removal to be temporary, until we recrawl the page and update the cache with the latest content.
Yup. You can't simply ask them to remove a cached page. At a minimum, you have to put in a "noarchive" tag. Alternatives are to change the page content, or delete the page entirely.
