Correct sequence is SRQP.

Explanation :
After the smoke, the flame broke from the wood so first is S.
Then everyone got to know about fire. So second is R.
About this fire, Q is telling that this fire was fanned by the rising gale (means wind) hence third is Q, which should be proceeded by R.

Last must be P this can be confirmed by reading the s6 which is talking about the passengers that is only possible after informing passengers about quitting the ship.

The very first sentence reflect that smoke comes out from plank (wood) it means there is silent fire in it.

So, the next sentence must be something which support this silent fire to convert into flame;this is supported by option "Q".

Then only it is possible that flames comes out from various places i.e. given in "S".

After seeing the flame everybody realize the outburst of fire i.e. in "R".

Therefore the correct order would be "QSRP" and not the "SRQP".

We have to understand the situation of real life people will smell and see the flames and than people realize it yes the ship is on fire and the strong wind makes that flame more strong hence people must leave the ship. Its the situation of real life and in this everybody is safe means they realized about the flame at the right time.

Read R carefully then you will get to know that people see something our feel something by which they realize it. Now we know that Q and R (one of them) suitable before R. Confusion between Q and R. Now, Q show aggressiveness of fire so it can't be use before R. :)

Flames will only be visible until fire appears and then only people will get that there is fire on board QSRP should be the correct one.

Smouldering means burning with little smoke and no flames. Hence option A is logic less option D is correct.

S1 is having between.

So underline the word between, definitely 'and' will come to next.

The answer is correct. Broke out means fire is just started followed by everyone.
