B.


I think I'll always be 2 steps behind you Himalayan. Sometimes 3. :)

S1: Just tells you the total number of tickets. Insufficient
S2: I worked out this equation.

2x = # of X tickets sold
x = # of Y tickets sold
[.6(2x) + .8(x)]/(2x + x) = 2.0x/3.0x = 2/3 = 66% total tickets purchased.

Answer is B.
