S1: You know my wife, Madhavi, always urged me to give up smoking.
P : I really gave it up.
Q : And so When I went to jail I said to myself I really must give it up, if for no other reason than of being self-reliant.

We can't start with R because it's definite that Q and P would come before R as R is denoting the past event which has taken place after Q and P.

Only S is finishing the para. :)

R comes after Q it is obvious, so A and D is omitted.

Now come to option B--> start with S which is not possible because last sentence describe about poor girl and S describes about a girl (who is poor).

So ultimately answer is C :).

Hi @Rajat, please read the S6. It shows a disappointment of husband towards his wife. reason for this disappointment is certainly the thing that he can not expect to her. His wife only insist him to quit the cigarettes and she caught with a packets of cigarettes.

So [s] should come just before s6.
S begins with 'But', so there must be any contrary statement before. So R precedes S always(RS).

Now R is talking about getting out of the jail and Q is talking about getting into jail. So definitely Q comes before RS.

Hence our sequence will be QRS.

Now in Q he decided to quit the cigarettes, So he quitted the cigarette. This is said in the P statement. so P follows Q.

Hence our jumbled sentence should be QPRS.
