The correct choice is (b) False

The best explanation: Open burning at the disposal sites causes severe air pollution due to incomplete combustion of the urban waste. And incomplete combustion is the result of improper supply of oxygen. It reduces the volume of the waste but results in pollution. So, it definitely causes air pollution and not noise pollution.
