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. ;-)
