Solution

  1. The proportion of dust in the air, water vapour, heavy gases, etc. is higher in the air closer to the surface of the earth.
  2. This proportion decreases with increasing altitude. As its effect, the air becomes thinner. This in turn, results in a fall in air pressure. In this way, air pressure decrease with increasing altitude.
