Neither of them is correct.
Is #2 correct? (#1 is another expression)
1. The loud noise made Jenny canít concentrate on her study.
2. The loud noise made Jenny canít study quietly.
The sentences are rewritten as follows. Which is acceptable/correct?
1. The loud noise drove Jenny crazy. This made Jenny very annoyed because she couldn’t study quietly.
2. The loud noise drove Jenny crazy. Because the music was so loud that Jenny couldn’t concentrate on her study.
3. The loud noise drove Jenny crazy because the music was so loud that Jenny couldn’t concentrate on her study.
Jenny was annoyed that the music/noise was so loud that she couldn't concentrate on her studies.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Is the sentence continuing the previous meaning acceptable?
At last, Jenny returned to the cozy atmosphere and studied smoothly.

Please pay close attention t;o Barb's rewrite.
I think you don't say you "study quietly" or "study smoothly".
You say you are able to concentrate on your study.
I am not a teacher.
It's "study smoothly" that's a bit too original.
Barb_D produced the perfect rewrite, fixing all three examples.
Please pay close attention to Barb's rewrite.
