P.E.A or P.E.E stands for point, evidence, analysis or point, evidence, explanation. 

It is a good way to structure an answer to make it clear, concicse and coherent. 

Firstly, you make a precise point. E.g. table tennis is a better sport than badminton.

You must then back this up with your evidence - this is usually in the form of quote. E.g. We know this as the book says "[insert appropriate related quote here]"

Lastly, you must give an explanation or analysis of how it is that the evidence that you have provided links to your point. E.g. Therefore, it is clear that table tennis is a better sport than badminton as less running is required (or another valid reason).
