    Default Reserved seats/ seat/ seating for the concert is available at the box office...

    "Reserved seats/ seat/ seating for the concert is available at the box office for an additional fee"


    The answer for the above sentence is 'seating'.

    I wonder why we can't say reserved seat(s).

    'Reserved seats' would need to be followed by 'are available'.

    'Reserved seat...is available' is unnatural.
