IELTS Reading: The Effects of Noise ๐Ÿ™‰

I had a special request for this Academic Passage 3 because it's difficult, but honestly, it's a very early test (Book 7) and is just badly-written.
I think the reading itself is very useful as an example of academic writing, with lots you can learn from it, but the questions are simply not good - you can guess 3 of them without even needing to understand what they mean (a sure sign of a bad test), and there is too much similar language (very few synonyms required).
If you struggled with this one - forget it and move on (but listen for practice ๐Ÿ˜Š.)
