Umm. I have never been good at solving such problems. But assuming that he has two items each worth 100 bucks, and sells one for 90 and other at 110 then total gain is 200 which makes no profit or loss.
What the post does not say is the cost of each item. If the two cost the same, then what @Kaustubh Katdare analyzed is correct.

Yeah, that's the underlying assumption that the two objects are the same; and cost the same. I'd have marked 'data insufficient' if it was an option.
