Can anyone tell me. Why (B) ?

Adjective should be before noun.

If there is a series of adjective describing a noun, then the adjectives are arranged according to the lenght of the sound of the words.

I agree with @Ambica.

Plus we stress more upon chair being broken because chair being wooden is no big deal.

B is the correct answer.

Sai said: (Mar 11, 2017)  
B is the correct answer.

"He found a 'wooden broken chair' in the room" does not give a meaning.

So, BROKEN WOODEN CHAIR is the correct one. The 'situation, thing and the material'.

Notice the order of adj.

Number, opinion, size, age, shape, color, origin.

J S said: (Sep 8, 2018)  
I agree with you @Shadi.

How? Explain the answer in detail.

Adjectives should tell more about the noun like quality, quantity.
