I had assumed that the requirement was that the floor area of each new area should be the same as previouslly. It's a long time since I studied geometry but I think the solution given does this whereas most (if not all) of the alternatives offered do not!

The solution of author is wrong.
He wrote the same area?

the cell area on the first picture is P=1/2a*a where a is lenght of match for ex=10
so area of 1 cell will be 50

on his picture we have equila teraltriangle so P=(a*a*square root(3))/4 where a is lenght of match for ex=10
so are of 1 cell will be 43,30

on my solution
right-angled triangle so P=a*a/2 where a is lenght of match for ex=10

so area of 1 cell will be 50

so you claim that my solution:
1. does not offer the same (equally big) area for 6 rabbits

???

Yes If it is in 2d your solutions is wrong.
Maybe rabbits will have enough space ;-) but it will be less than on the begining.

I have not mentioned anything about enough space ... less does not mean not enough ... btw, have you seen a rabbit that would fit into your or my image?

ps: have you noticed that your solution is not made of matchsticks of the same size? check the hypotenuses

If you are so smart give my solution of this problem triangle A1A2A3 is make one plane A and is formated on platen plane Z, triangle B1B2B3 is make the second plane B and is formated on plated plane x , plane Z is perpendicular to plane X finde the cuting edge of Tr A1A2A3 & B1B2B3 (all is in 3d of course)
