What i feel is that the statements S and P should come together as a correct sequence since the part of speech is direct and the interjection of the statement R between S and P tends to defeat the flow of speech. It is worth noting that R can be mentioned after SP as it attains a narrative form after direct speech is completed. (I might be wrong however... )

Yes dude, I felt the same. But the answer is B since number is not dull is only identified once number is identified.
