This question is testing your knowledge of two things.
1) What gases make up the atmosphere?
2) How does one determine the total pressure of a mixture of gases?
So what are the three most common gases in the atmosphere? They ...
This solution explains how to determine the atmospheric pressure of a mixture of gases by applying Dalton's Law of partial pressures.
