"revenue =price\\times quantity"

Options one total revenue is "40000\\times 10=400000" , option two total revenue is "30000\\times20=600000" . Therefore, I would choose option two due to the high revenue.

"PED=\\frac{\\Delta{Q}}{\\Delta{P}}\\times\\frac{P}{Q}"

"=\\frac{-10000}{10}\\times{\\frac{10}{40000}}=-0.25" . The negative sign shows the direction of change. Since the elasticity is less than one, the demand for the tickets is price inelastic and one can earn more by increasing the price.
