For last night's performance, a certain theatre sold 9/10 of its tickets. The theatre charged $10 for each ticket it sold. What was the theater's revenue from ticket sales for that performance? (1) 23 of the tickets for last night's performance were not sold. (2) The theater has 230 seats. Dont agree with OA again... Seats may not nesscarily equal revenue ticket seats?

(1) 23 of the tickets for last night's performance were not sold.
(2) The theater has 230 seats.

Dont agree with OA again...

Seats may not nesscarily equal revenue ticket seats?

since the first statement is enough to tell you that 23*9 tickets were sold.
however the second statement gives the number of seats which can't be assumed to be equal to number of tickets (i think!...or i could be reading too much into this)

I vote for D.

The spirit of DS : GMAT rarely asks us to "bring into scope" any other parameter in such questions.

For eg : while computing income, if cost and revenues is given or mentioned , then these are the only 2 determining factors. Even though one might argue that tax and other sundry expenses may affect income.
