    1. The temperature of air wil ......... if we add a hydrogen molecule of a speed higher than 1980 m s/-1.
    2. The temperature of air will ........ if we take away a hydrogen molecule of a speed highr than 1980 m s /-1.
    3. The temperature of air will ........ if we take away a hydrogen molecule of a speed lower than 1980 m s /-1.
    4. The temperature of air will ........ if we add a hydrogen molecule of a speed lower than 1980 m s/-1.

    Is the assumption here that the average speed of all the molecules is 1980 m s/-1? Because if it is not, the answers could be anyone's guess.

    Also, what do you think the answer should be?
