A thick rope is stronger than a thin rope of the same material Is a long rope stronger than a short rope?

No. Length has nothing to do with the strength. The strength of a rope is found in the strength of the material, the thickness of that material and in the numbers of strands of the material that are interwoven. Length is not a part of the equation of strength. However, if you were to break a large number of short and long ropes, the short ropes will be stronger on average. This is due to the fact that the chance of a defect on a long rope is higher than the chance of a defect occurring on a short rope.
