We are asked to find the pressure of CO at the given conditions. Since mass, volume and temperature are given, we will use the ideal gas equation to calculate for pressure.

P = pressure, atm
V = volume, L
n = moles, mol
R = gas constant = 0.08206 (L·atm)/(mol·K)
T = temperature, K

In the ideal gas equation, moles are needed but the mass of CO is given instead. We’ll calculate the moles of CO using the mass and its molar mass.
