  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script>
    $(document).ready(function () {
      $('#increase').click(function () {
        modifyFontSize('increase');
      });

      $('#decrease').click(function () {
        modifyFontSize('decrease');
      });

      $('#reset').click(function () {
        modifyFontSize('reset');
      })

      function modifyFontSize(action) {
        var divElement = $('.demo');
        var currentFontSize = parseInt(divElement.css('font-size'));

        if (action == 'increase')
          currentFontSize += 3;
        else if (action == 'decrease')
          currentFontSize -= 3;
        else
          currentFontSize = 16;
        divElement.animate({ 'fontSize': currentFontSize }, 300);
      }
    });
  </script>
</body>
</html> 
Steps

Firstly we have created a function modifyFontSize( action ). Inside that, we have retrieved the current font size of the divElement. Then

  1. if the action parameter receives the value increase, we are incrementing currentFontSize by 3
  2. if the action parameter receives the value decrease, we are decrementing currentFontSize by 3
  3. Else we are setting the curentFontSize to default 20px.

Then if the increase button is clicked then we are invoking the function modifyFontSize() with argument increase i.e. modifyFontSize( increase ) and the same with the decrease and reset button

Output
