Solution

## The correct option is B 19.0⇒ We know that the air pressure at the death zone threshold is approximately 35% of sea level air pressure.⇒ Sea lever air pressure =29.2⇒ 35% of 29.2=35100×29.2=10.2.⇒ The approximate difference between the pressure at sea level and the pressure at the death zone threshold =29.2−10.2=19.0
