Did one of the 3 members of a certain team sell at least 2 raffle tickets yesterday?

(1) The 3 members sold a total of 6 raffle tickets yesterday. (2) No 2 of the members sold the same number of raffle tickets yesterday.

Acc to (1) one should mean only 1 member sold atleast 2 raffle, NOT atleast one member sold atleast 2 raffle. Hence, the two contradictory options should be : 0,0,6- one member sold atleast 2 raffle 2,2,2- more than one member sold atleast 2 raffle.

Did one of the 3 members of a certain team sell at least 2 raffle tickets yesterday?

The question basically asks whether there is a member who sold at least 2 tickets (so 2 or more).

(1) The 3 members sold a total of 6 raffle tickets yesterday. If each of the 3 members sold less than 2 tickets, then the total # of tickets sold cannot be 6, hence at least one member sold at least 2 tickets. Sufficient.

Or: can we split 6 tickets so that ALL 3 members to have sold less than 2 tickets? No: (6,0,0); (5,1,0), (4,1,1); (4,2,0); (3,3,0),(3,2,1), (2,2,2). Sufficient.

(2) No 2 of the members sold the same number of raffle tickets yesterday. If one member sold 0 tickets and another sold 1 ticket (the least possible numbers), then the third one must have sold more than 1, so 2 or more. Sufficient.

Answer: D.

Hope it's clear.

If the Q asks "whether there is a member who sold at least 2 tickets (so 2 or more)" then it should have been framed as atleast one NOT one which indicates Exactly one. Hence the doubt. Infact, i would say the Q should use the word Atleast or Exactly to make it clear.

Not so (even though I do see why you are confused).

Actually it's opposite, if the question meant exactly (only) one, then it would say so. _________________
