Q 1148101003.     A cylinder fitted with a movable and air tight piston contains a few drops of water and nitrogen gas at a pressure of 760 torr. If the piston is moved forward and volume is reduced to half of its initial volume while keeping temperature constant, the resulting pressure of the system would be: (neglect the volume occupied by water; aqueous tension at the given temperature is 20 torr)
A

1500 torr

B

1420 torr

C

1580 torr

D

1640 torr
