The very first sentence reflect that smoke comes out from plank (wood) it means there is silent fire in it.

So, the next sentence must be something which support this silent fire to convert into flame;this is supported by option "Q".

Then only it is possible that flames comes out from various places i.e. given in "S".

After seeing the flame everybody realize the outburst of fire i.e. in "R".

Therefore the correct order would be "QSRP" and not the "SRQP".

I also followed your logic @Himang. The answer should be QSRP.

I also agree with option(D). Because it satisfies all the required condition.

We have to understand the situation of real life people will smell and see the flames and than people realize it yes the ship is on fire and the strong wind makes that flame more strong hence people must leave the ship. Its the situation of real life and in this everybody is safe means they realized about the flame at the right time.

Yeah exactly the correct sequence is is option D i.e. QSRP.

Girija said: (Mar 3, 2015)  
I also agree with that sequence D.

Vijay said: (Sep 20, 2015)  
Smouldering means burning with little smoke and no flames. Hence option A is logic less option D is correct.

Read R carefully then you will get to know that people see something our feel something by which they realize it. Now we know that Q and R (one of them) suitable before R. Confusion between Q and R. Now, Q show aggressiveness of fire so it can't be use before R. :)

Ashish said: (Jan 21, 2016)  
QSRP supports the sequence.

Ruchi said: (Sep 16, 2016)  
Yeah, QSRP is the correct answer.

Alok said: (May 12, 2017)  
Yeah, D is the right option.

Sarita Goswami said: (Feb 23, 2018)  
Yes, D is the correct answer.

Hks said: (May 30, 2018)  
I think D is the right answer.

Manoj said: (Oct 18, 2018)  
The answer is correct. Broke out means fire is just started followed by everyone.

Avishek Prasad said: (Nov 2, 2019)  
Flames will only be visible until fire appears and then only people will get that there is fire on board QSRP should be the correct one.

Jaffer said: (May 9, 2021)  
S1 is having between.

So underline the word between, definitely 'and' will come to next.

Anamika said: (Aug 9, 2021)  
Correct sequence is SRQP.

Explanation :
After the smoke, the flame broke from the wood so first is S.
Then everyone got to know about fire. So second is R.
About this fire, Q is telling that this fire was fanned by the rising gale (means wind) hence third is Q, which should be proceeded by R.

Last must be P this can be confirmed by reading the s6 which is talking about the passengers that is only possible after informing passengers about quitting the ship.
