Is fasting on Taanis Esther considered as if one drank Ad Dlo Yada on both Purim and Taanis Esther? Just like we find eating on Erev Yom Kippur is considered as if one fasted on both that day and Yom Kippur.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Purim Torah questions are on-topic only once a year, and will be closed after Purim. For details, see: Purim Torah policy" – Monica Cellio
Yes, it is considered to be the same thing.
Just as you can experience cognitive handicaps when drunk (so much so as to confuse Arur Haman and Baruch Mordechai!), you can also do the same thing under dehydration.
Beware that according to this line of reasoning, the minimum and maximum shiur for fasting on Taanis Esther are probably the same, if not reversed in their order. But hey, we tried :)
