 Gowtham said: (Nov 23, 2011) Why the answer can't be choice (A) ?

 Nikhil said: (Oct 22, 2014) It should be a, because RQ forms a logical pair.

 Singham said: (Aug 10, 2016) Subject and the verb that modifies them should be kept closer i.e. servant and who was.

 Yogesh said: (Feb 18, 2020) Reason for option C.

 Ramanan said: (Oct 20, 2020) The correct statement is QPRS.

 Zee said: (Jun 16, 2021) "Punished the servant" and "who was very loyal to him" go together. So, QP must go together too. So it can either be option A or C. The correct answer is option C because it implies that the master punished the servant because he left the work without giving any valid reason. This makes better sense than option A which implies that without any reason the master punished the servant for leaving the work unfinished which doesn't make any sense because the master punished him for a reason and the reason is he left the work unfinished and did not give any reason.
