ties and T-shirts

1) Today we sold twenty sandwiches and sodas.
Could this mean: Twenty sandwiches and twenty sodas?

2) Today we sold thirty ties and T-shirts.
Could this mean: thirty ties and thirty T-shirts? (obviously ties and T-shirts do go in pairs, so they were definitely sold separately)


3) There were thirty big and small boxes in the room.

Could this mean: thirty big boxes and thirty small boxes?


Gratefully,

Ties and T shirts most definitely do not go in pairs.
