B is my answer

A doesn't tell enough : 0 + 3/2 M = 2350
B is enough : O + 3/2 O = 2350 ---> O = 940.
So B is enough to find out.

B is the answer, since FM + SM = 1.5*O,


and FM + SM + O = 2350 => O = 940.

for me what confused me at first was the word "orchestra"...I thought the orchestra was part of the concert and did not know it was among the ticketsand so i thought we needed only the first and second mezzanine ...i guess we need to watch out for those commas....


now that i know orchestra is also a ticket, i agree with B
