    The barometric pressure was recorded on the digital device in millibars. What is the equivalent air pressure in inches of mercury (Hg)?

    (1) 29.59 in of Hg

    (2) 29.60 in of Hg

    (3) 29.62 in of Hg

    (4) 29.65 in of Hg

    Base your answers to questions 2 on the weather map below. The map shows isobars and seven weather station models. Four of the weather stations are identified by letters A, B, C, and D.
