(1) The number of full price tickets sold was equal to 81 percent of the number of spectators expected by the stadium manager
(2) Of the 11,880 people who attended the event, 90 percent had bought full-price tickets.

Statement 1:
Sufficient. Of 13,200 ppl expected, no. of full price ticket is 81%
statement 2:
Sufficient, since total no. of ppl attended the event = total no. of tickets bought. so 90% of 11,880 will give you the no. of ppl who bought full price ticket.

What's the OA?

1) no of tickets sold = 81% x 13200

2) no of tickets sold = 90% x 11880 (since everyone who bought, attended)

Either case there is sufficient info to get the answer

I agree. if we take each statement independently, we are able to compute the number of tickets sold. Answer d.
