The price scope, or Catalog price scope is the context of a configuration setting to apply the price in Magento 2 web store catalog. In the price scope, the base currency scope is used for product prices that can be configured at either global or website level. If the Catalog Price Scope is set to the global level, the same price is used throughout the store hierarchy.  If the Catalog Price Scope is applied at the website level, the same product can be available at different prices in different stores.

For example, there might be additional costs to bring the product to the market and other decisions that affect the price of products sold in a specific store. This following picture provides a multi-website installation with the base currency set to the website level. The same product has a different price in each store.

Product Scope is the scope setting which decides the place where products are available for sale, and for each store view that the product information is available. At first, every product that you create is  placed on the default website, store, and store view.

How to Changing Scope in Magento 2 Basic Configuration

The location of the Store View selection is in the upper-left corner of Admin pages that filters the view of the page for a specific scope, and also sets the value of some entities that are used by Magento. Each level of the hierarchy is listed by name and is used to change scope to another level. Any settings that do not represent the current scope will be grey out by the system, and only represents the current scope setting. The scope is firstly set to “Default Config”. For restricted access Admin Users, the list of available store views includes only those to which the user has permission to access. According to the current scope, the default setting can be either applied or overridden by using the checkbox on the right of many configuration settings. When you mark the checkbox, the field value cannot be changed. To change the current value, first, you have to clear the checkbox, and then enter the new value. Whenever you change the scope, you must confirm. The checkbox label changes as indicated by the current range, and always alludes to the parent level which is one stage up in the order. The parent level is the holder for all items which are lower than that level, and this is the reason why the value from the parent level is inherited unless it is overridden.
