How does air exert pressure?

Air is made up of molecules of different gases. The molecules are colliding with each other continuously with the walls of the container. When a molecule collides with the wall, they exert small force on the wall The pressure exerted by the gas is due to the sum of all these collision forces. The more particles that hit the walls, the higher the pressure.
