The noise wake up Jane.
May I know should be wake up or wakes up. Thank you.
Do you understand how to construct the present tense, third person singular form of a verb?

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

As the teacher told us, you need to use "wakes."
May I respectfully remind you that if you wish to speak (and write) standard English, you need to use the "s" in the present tense when you are referring to a singular subject in a sentence IF it is not a question or a negative sentence.
1. The noise wakes up Jane every day at 6 a.m.
2. Does the noise wake up Jane every day at 6 a.m.? (That's a question.)
3. The noise does not wake up Jane every day at 6 a.m. (That's the negative.)
Here are three sentences that I have made up. Please fill in the correct form of "eat" in the present tense:
4. The student ____ her lunch in the cafeteria.
5. Does the student ____ her lunch in the cafeteria?
6. The student does not _____ her lunch in the cafeteria.
I am sure that you know the correct form for those sentences.
