The question has to do with the laboratory procedure for removing the common gas oxygen when it occurs or is present as an unwanted constituent in the process of preparing some other gas. In my chemistry book, they describe how to purify gases like hydrogen chloride or liquids like sulphuric acid during laboratory production to get rid of undesirable contaminants, but there is no mention of the (usual) way to eliminate oxygen from a mixture of gases.
