Welcome to the forum, satish bahuguna. :hi:

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.

The phrase could mean several different things. Please provide more context - at least a complete sentence.
