In Spanish, when talking about exact cost in currency, the use of es/son is determined by the number of pesos, for example. When talking about the general cost (caro/barato), the use of es/son is determined by the number of items. That's why you see the change in the example from the workout. First "son" is used to express the exact cost, then "es" to describe general cost of one item.
Here are some examples.
Cuanto cuesta este caramelo? Son 10 pesos.
Esas maletas son caras o baratas? Las pequenas son baratas, pero las grandes son caras.
Esta chaqueta es barata, verdad? Si, solo son 100 pesos!
