@Devendra Answer is wrong as it was written in the puzzle that person has not even looked at him

The solution is that man gave him two coins of 50c each (or 4 coins of 25c each) if man would have wanted one ticket then we would have given once 50c only. (I am not sure if we have 50c coin if not then the solution is 4 coins of 25c each)
