Default Why Does This Happen.

I have added the moz extension on my browser for checking page and domain authority of any website.

I can't understand that when i visit a site i.e "couponorcode.com" the DA=10 and PA=18 but when i visit "www.couponorcode.com" the DA remains the same but the PA changes to 24.

What is the difference and why is it happening??

Domain authority is the point for whole domain i mean the actual domain. But page authority is the point which has given to specific pages and it can differ from one another. Some page can have high authority and some may low though the domain is the same.

That also happens with Google page speed tool.

You will get different results for www and non-www websites
Because those are actually two different URLs. So you are basically creating two different link profiles for the site. Either you should use 301 redirection or canonical tag to the preferred site.

Moz calculates DA based on the whole domain and passes the same DA to all of the sub domains of the site. So the DA remains same for all subdomain.

The www is highly recommended because of its worldwide use and better user experience.

I haven't really paid attention to DA and PA until now. People are serious about it. I was just straight up on content and improving design and user experience.
