The ‘p’ is uppercase suggesting it’s a name (see ‘bell’ below which is all in lowercase). I would hazard a guess that the correct answer is the girl
Indeed.

Indeed.
If that's the answer, they are expecting quite a lot from 6-year olds!
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Indeed.
I've shown this to over 20 adults so far, only 3 got that answer.

True, but they should communicate whatever it is with the parents who are helping with the homework.

Only 1 of them, who works in education went with the girl. She knew it immediately.   
Btw, if Peg wasnt also a common word or they used a name like  Meg, I think more people would figure it out.

I believe Peg can mean a leg, probably should circle the person jumping on theirs.

Although that's clearly the answer. The reason why I think most people won't assume that is because you would assume they are learning spelling words and proper nouns are never spelling words

Did these adults read a book that day that focused heavily on monosyllabic words, and that had Peg as a primary character?

Maybe they were learning capitalization.
