Questions like this can catch you out if you've been focusing on the partial pressure of the gas; converting the physical amount into its physiological effect when breathed by a diver at pressure.

The question is asking what the physical amount is in the cylinder. This will not change with the change in pressure.1% in the cylinder at the surface will still be 1% in the cylinder at 30m/sw.
