Option (b) is the correct answer.
Miscommunication is defined as the lack of communication between two or more individuals.
Whereas interference means unnecessary interruption in someone's work or life.
Thus, we can conclude that out of the given options, the situation where a British man arguing loudly over football with his American friend is most likely to lead to miscommunication and interference.
b. a British man arguing loudly over football with his American friend.
This is the situation that would most likely lead to miscommunication and interference. There are several reasons for this. First of all, the two men are arguing. This means that their emotions are intense, and perhaps they are angry. This is usually an obstacle to effective communication. Moreover, the men are doing so loudly, which adds another complication to understanding. Finally, the men are discussing a topic that can potentially have different implications for people from different cultures.
