    Welcome to the forum, satish bahuguna.

    Please try to construct complete sentences, and use punctuation correctly:

    What is the meaning of 'out of mercury'?
    Please tell me what 'out of mercury' means.

    Without context it could mean anything from 'unable to make thermometers for lack of supplies' to 'emanating from the planet in the Solar System that has the shortest orbit'.
