    Because in each term we are adding a constant quantity i.e. 1/2  to each terms
    so if we remove 1/2 from each term we get

    Peacock , egg, day

    Answer : 2 eggs

    Using logic and assuming that the initial premise (first statement) is true, we have:

    Given: 1.5 days –> 1.5 peacock, 1.5 eggs

    Double time ==> double eggs for same number of peacocks
    3 days –> 1.5 peacock, 3 eggs

    2/3 number of peacocks ==> 2/3 eggs for same time
    3 days –> 1 peacock, 2 eggs
