E.

1) Insufficient
2) Insufficient

1+2 ) Insufficient because those we still don't know how many people attended the fair on at least one day.

Agree with E. Too many variables in this one.

B is taking a percentage of a percentage. Look at the "of" word and you'll see it. "10% of those who attended at least one day".

So if 200 people went on one day, and 70 people went for two days, and 30 people went for all three days, then together that makes 300 people, and 10% of that is the number that went for three full days, 30.

or, if you like algebra, then say that x people went for one day, y people went for two days, and z people went for three days, so .1(x+y+z)=z
