This is the thing, if they are absent they dont excersize treaty rights to my knowledge, therefore i have said thay it is bot possible as she was absent and did not excersize treaty rights, any one please is that correct or am I wrong?

You were wrong. There is no need to exercise treaty rights when not present in the UK. However, you are allowed upto 6 months of absence in a year (12 months in certain circumstances).

Thanks Jambo, but when she left she was not working, registered as job seeker or held an csi, i think in that circumstance the eu citizens will not be considered as excersizing treaty rights therefore can not apply for PR. Correct me if in wrong.

Thanks

She will need to exercise treaty rights while in the UK so if she was not working for 2 years, left for 6 months and came back she will need to prove treaty rights for those 2 years but not for the 6 months away. If she stopped working a week before leaving for 6 months, there is no need to prove treaty rights for the time she was away.
