8.
 S1: When a satellite is launched, the rocket begins by going slowly upwards through the air. P : However, the higher it goes, the less air it meets. Q : As the rocket goes higher, it travels faster. R : For the atmosphere becomes thinner. S : As a result there is less friction. S6: Consequently, the rocket still does not become too hot.
The Proper sequence should be:
QPRS
QSPR
PQRS
PQSR

Correct sequence will be QRPS which is not given in option, friction is due to air so statement S FOLLOWED BY statement P.

Friction make the rocket hot. So S will be end point. Air makes friction. So P comes just before the friction topic. :)

In statement [S],"As a" is there. It means for some reason there is less friction.

This reason is mentioned in [R] that "due to atmosphere gets thinner". So S always follows R.

We get RS.

Now in [P], "However" is there, So there must be conflicting statement before it. Hence P follows Q.

So we get QP.

Now there are two possibility either "RSQP" or "QPRS". for selecting one between these two option we read statement [S6].

Definitely statement S makes meaning before S6 but P don't.
Therefore our sequence goes QPRS.
