I thought it would beA (115).

My reasoning is, we need to take the worst case scenario where people as they come are getting filled into the rows with the most vacancy.

So, 40+45+30.

I would pick A as well based on worst case scenario.

I get 148 too.

To me, the worst case scenario is filling all seats except one in all levels, ie, 29, 44, 39, 24, and 9 which adds up to 145. Add 3 to fill 3 levels. Hence 148.

I too get 148.


lol, SC! First I got 115, then I thought a bit and corrected to 148. Silly justification.
Well, I too got 148! Thanks!

Tricky question. Those who choose A read "minimum" in the stem, while it is "minimum to ensure" (means to give 100% guarantee)

Honestly, I chose A from the begining :)
Now I think it is D
