Why not option C ?

Ram said: (Nov 27, 2013)  
From the sentence of P, God make two parts, first part is upper-->R,

Second part is lower-->s.

So the option is QPRS.

Thank you Ram. For clarifying the above question asked by MR. Jaypreet. For me also same doubt:).

Prashant said: (May 17, 2015)  
On the above note we can think in another way also. First lower part is created and then upper. Please anyone can justify?

Tamilselvi said: (Jun 10, 2015)  
I am also having same doubt why don't first lower and then upper?

Vishal Panchal said: (Sep 30, 2015)  
The same doubt is with me too. Can anybody clear it?

Nayana said: (Oct 1, 2015)  
I am also having the same doubt but I will find answer somehow.

Venkataramana said: (Dec 19, 2015)  
I have one answer for this, if we want to undo any work from any thing we start with upper part. We can't go inside right, so QPRS.

Aman Raj said: (Apr 16, 2016)  
S1 related to Q and last RS, so correct option is D.

Amit said: (Jul 4, 2016)  
The correct explanation is R contains 'Out of' and it is used when we have to choose from more than one things. So that R will come after P.

Consider it through example. To grow a plant you take a pot full of sand first (universe with stars) then you plant seed (earth).

Or otherwise, universe must be constructed first so that earth can come into a picture.

Vivek Kumar Tripathi said: (Jun 25, 2017)  
S6 is related to S, that's why correct answer is D.

Sangeetha said: (Sep 21, 2017)  
Why not C?

Dushyant Paterya said: (Nov 21, 2017)  
Because S is related to S6. See sentence S-.

"The god created the 'earth'. ".

And earth is related to people. See sentence S6-.

" The god molded the first 'people' out of clay. ".

So, S and S6 have some relation that's why S will come before S6.

Gaurav said: (Sep 2, 2018)  
We consider from outer to inner.

First universe, then earth, then creatures.

That's why QPRS.

Tabassum said: (Aug 7, 2019)  
Why not option (A)?

Charan said: (Sep 12, 2019)  
Why not it is C?

Ujjwal said: (Jan 26, 2020)  
It's not C because there written "upper part of body ". And only" lower part"" in next one.

Suman Giri said: (Oct 17, 2021)  
I can understand the problem that everyone facing here with the "lower part" and "upper part". Its not about the upper part or lower part, the last line suggests that god created humans. So the sentence that comes before it would be S as it describes the creation of animals. Animals are living things so are humans.
