In first sentence we are talking about Abrahim Lincoln and his shop. Then we will talk about either him or his shop. No sentence regarding shop just like where it was situated. So the next sentence would be Q.

Other fact is that in the group R should immediately follow P to make a meaningful sentence as it shows the event of coming of customers and his consequent action. Since option B is the only option where R immediately follows P, so B is the answer.

Always don't depend only on first and last sentence. Many times it make you confuse. Read all the sentences you will get to know that PR come in sequence. How check the options and go with them. :).

Actually, pair sentences are P and R, they must come in sequence so, the given option is correct.

The s1 says about Lincoln and his shop so the next sentence must relate to his shop or him.
