Initial Sequence Diagram for Exercise consisting of 1) Customer, 2) Purchase, 3) ShowSeat, 4) Ticket, and 5) PriceTier.

Task 1: Find a new parameter and its source.
Problem: The ticket has to print the location of the seat.
Goal: Find out which object owns the seat location and get it. Update the sequence diagram accordingly.
Task 2: Find a new return value and its source.
Problem: The purchase requires a discount value.
Goal: Find out which object owns the discount value and get it.
(To simplify the solution, assume that the total number of tickets and their value have been computed by the Purchase object and are ready to be used as parameter values when the discount is needed.)
Update the sequence diagram accordingly.
