Your parents are going to buy a house. They have been offered one on the roadside and another three lanes away from the roadside. Which house would you suggest your parents should buy? Explain your answer.

Answer

I would suggest my parents to buy a house which is three lanes away from the roadside.

This is because the house on the roadside would receive a lot of noise pollution due to honking of vehicles.

As the intensity of sound decreases as distance increases, the house farther from the roadside is recommended.
