S1 should follow with some more details about the trams,.

(P) & (S) cannot be the next sentence after S1, So option A, B, C omitted.


S6 mentions about some construction, in this case (Q) & (S).

Suits, further we see (S) + (Q) + (S6) suits the best.

So option D.

S1 should say something about tram,

the best suited sentence for S1 is (R),

the best suited sentence for (R)is (P),

then look for option, you find it right there in (D) option ,
go to next question dont waste time....

How to find correct format of this sentence?

Is there any tricks here to play with correction of sentences?

First of all you need to know the meaning of few words used in this. If you understand then you can easily find that are will come before P.

Now check the options and then go with remaining options. :)

Are all of these word problems deliberately miss-spelling words?

The main hint is in the last sentence. The last sentence has qualified with option q. So we finally have 2 choices a and d. Next step is to find first sentence. In option at the first sentence is given as p. But p is describing about result without any example. So by elimination it must be option d. This is how we can solve by finding qualifiers.

In these type of question we should have the approach to find all the facts, then all the judgements, and finally find the inferences and then arrange them all. In order fact, judgment, inference [assumption + conclusion].
