The reaction equation is as,

CO2    +    C  →   2CO
1 v            1 v       2v

Let x lit of   CO2 gives 2x lit of CO

Volume left of CO2 = (1-x)

Total volume = 1.4 lit

So,
(1-x) + 2x = 1.4

1+x= 1.4

x= 0.4 lit

As CO = 2x

= 2×0.4

CO = 0.8 lit

Volume of CO2 = 1.4- 0.8

= 0.6 lit

Composition of product is 0.8 lit CO and 0.6 lit of CO2.
