b.
1.0 L of N2 at STP
e.
1.0 L of He at STP
c.

  1. I suppose the simplest thing to do is to calculate the number of mols of each although 1.0 L at STP will give the same number of mols no matter which gas is used.
    PV = nRT

    You can use reasoning if you wish. Note that n = PV/RT so when T is greater than standard T n will be greater and when P is larger than standard you know n will be larger. I figure the smallest one will be either c or d.
