Bunuel or anyone, suppose the consecutive NUMBERS are 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4?

Doesn't that qualify as an arithmetic sequence with common difference of 1/4?

If so, 1/4 + 2/4 + 3/4 = 6/4 or 3/2. 3/2 divided by 3 is 1/2.

The only answer that makes sense from the question is indeed C, but I had to decide that "number" meant "integer."

I see the word "number" and think, "It might be a trap."

As far as I understand it, the rule (sum of three consecutive integers always divisible by 3) only applies to integers.

What am I missing?
