Option C is the correct answer.

### Option Analysis

The Average Customer per car is defined as follows

Average Customer per Car = (Total Customers) / (Total No. of Cars)

i.e. Total No. of Cars = (Total Customers) / (Average Customer per Car)

Statement I is insufficient: Average Customer per Car=2

i.e. Total Customers = (2) * (Total No. of Cars).

Since the Total No. of Customers is unknown therefore Not sufficient

Statement II is insufficient: Total receipts at the outdoor movie last night were $4,500 at $5 per customer

Total Customer = Total Receipts / Receipt per customer = 4500/ 5 = 900

But then the relation between Total Number of Customers and No. of Cars is unknown, Therefore Not sufficient

Together I and II,

From Statement I: Total Customers = (2) * (Total No. of Cars)

From Statement II: Total Customers = 900

i.e. (Total No. of Cars) = 900/2 = 450
