The net proceeds increase as the number of tickets sold increases. Did the net proceeds exceed $80,000 on 7,600 tickets sold?
(1) The net proceeds exceeded $40,000 on 4,000 tickets sold.
(2) The net proceeds exceeded $100,000 on $7,000 tickets sold.
As we're asked about a something that looks like a range (it has 'exceeds' = 'greater than'), we'll look at the extremes.
This is a Logical approach.
(1) So 4,000 tickets gave more than $40,000. We don't know if all the tickets have the same price or not so have no idea how much money 7,600 tickets netted. Could be $41,000 and could be $100,000.
(2) Since more tickets means more money than more than 7,000 tickets means more than $100,000, so definitely more than $80,000.
(B) is our answer.
