this one is from kaplan

A recent study showed that the constant roar of jet aircraft could be a serious impact to the psychological well-being of children living near airports and sharply increase their possibility to have high blood pressure.

Hi Baron,

"Impact" is a idea, this took me a while too. It is a noun.

Sorry cochise.

Gonna have to agree with the Curlmeister on this one.

"Impact", although common used as a verb, should properly be used in general as a noun (only teeth are impacted).

IN addition, the idiom "probability of" is correct so E is my choice for the answer.
