Dear student,

When gas is expanded slowly, the pressure of the dry air remains the same throughout the process. Hence from ideal gas equation,
Hence the temperature also becomes 3 times its inital value=

When the gas is suddely expanded, the process becomes an adiabatic one, and hence follows the relation,
