if the atmosphere can support a column of mercury 760 mm high at sea level, what height of a hypothetical liquid whose density is 1.40 times the density of mercury could supported?

If it's heavier by 1.4x then it should support a column that's 1.4 times less than Hg. Or 760/1.4 = about 543 mm or so.
