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

The OA is D.

I am quite confused with the wording in this question.
Shouldn't it be 'Did anyone of the 3 members ... " instead of as above ?

Is the question complete? Is there a condition that a member sold atleast a ticket?

Makes sense, and yeah it means did any one of the 3 members.

1) If 3 sold 6 tickets, then all combination of numbers that add up to 6 include at least 1 value that is 2 or higher.
e.g. (6,0,0) (3,3,0) (3,2,1) (2,2,2)

2) rules out 2,2,2 but all others are still valid.

1: lowest we can have for all 3 is 2. Suff

2: best we can do is 0,1,2 again Suff
