Aboard at LA = (Aboard at NY) - (deplaned at Chicago) + (1st Boarding at Chicago);

149 = 170 - 23 + 1st Boarding at Chicago;

1st Boarding at Chicago = 2. ans C.

Obviously S1 is not sufficient

S2 also does no specify how many boarded Chicago but the combination facilitates the solution of eqn 170-23+x = 149, where x is no of passengers who boarded Chicago.

Consider 149 as total passengers
1) remaining passengers from Ny
2) plus first boarded at chicago.

S 1: does not tell us how many remaining at Chicago from NyC. Insufficient
S2: tell us The remaining passenger at chicago from NYC, but not mention passengers first boarded at Chicago. Insufficient

S1+s2

170-23= remaining passengers from NYC=157
157-149= first board at Chicago
