    best idea is to write the balanced equation for it

    since it tells us that hydrogen gas is the excess reagent, then carbon dioxide is the limiting reactant

    so that means, when a reactant is limiting, all of it is consumed in the reaction. then we simply find its molar ratio between carbon dioxide and methane to determine the moles of methane produced

    so write a balanced equation for this reaction first
