the question is ambiguous.

I did not understand that the guy bought different number of cupcake and doughnuts untill i read 2)

We have 4 variables, price and number of doughnuts & price and number of cupcakes.

Both 1) and 2) only tell us about price but even taken together, they do not say anything about the number of doughnuts & cupcakes
