Hi, Maria! You are right about the answers to the question. The sentence should read "Over 1 million partygoers saw out the New Year in New York's Times Square on Monday night and witnessed one of 2008's very first efforts to conserve energy."

The word "partygoers" means people at a party. It's a compound word made out of "party" and "goers," or people who go. 

Thanks for your question!
