What if the nitrogen in our at atmosphere was replaced by other gas(helium,carbon dioxide,hydrogen etc)But oxygen level stayed the same?
What would happen if the nitrogen in our atmosphere was some other gas?

CO₂, we would be dead
He, we would be ok, but plant life would eventually die, as they need nitrogen. Ditto with other noble gases.
H₂, that would be an explosive mixture and the entire atmosphere would explode, killing all life.
Methane, also explosive.

It depends on which gas. Nitrogen is not poisonous, but many others are.
