    Vocabs..

    Dear teacher,

    I have some problems pertaining to the usage of the right vocabs and I really need your help:

    1. When someone left a note on the scene where he commited suicide to tell the reason why he did so, do we call the note a 'will' or something?

    2. What would be the most appropriate collective noun to be inserted to the black below?
    A ___ of profound air—considerably coming together with dust—sprang from inside the room.

    3. Do we 'grab' our nose (or is there a better verb?) when we smell something smelly?

    Your help would be appreciated.
    Thank you very much! :P

    No- it is a suicide note or letter: it doesn't distribute property.
