We need to recognize the pattern.

First see "PSVY"
We can also write it this way - P2S2V2Y (insert nos. which symbolizes the no. of letters which are left out).

(B2E1G3K : A2D1F3J - In this pair the ratio on both sides is 2:1:3 )
for our given problem the ration is 2:2:2 so now we need to look for the set which has combination as 2:2:2.

i.e we can see that after P two letters (Q and R )are overlooked and third letter S is written.In the same way after S two letters (T,U )are overlooked and third letter V is written.Similarly after V we omit two letters (W AND X)and get Y.

SO For our answer we try to identify this pattern and find ORUX as right answer.
