Solution

The correct option is D Q-R-S-P
The first statement in the sequence should be the one that best connects with S1. It must be a continuation or extension of S1.
Q is first in the sequence: S1 says that materially advertisements do us no good. Q further adds to S1 that they are one of the worst avoidable evils.
Q is followed by R: R starts to support Q's claim. It says that our buildings are covered with prints and pictures that distract and wear us.
R is followed by S: S continues R's point. It says that the Architects of these buildings might give their designs dignity or the beauty of pattern.
S is followed by P: P directly continues after S by saying that the advertisements treat closely on their heels and destroy its effect. S6 adds that these advertisements have but one requirement that their intrusion should be conspicuous.
Thus, the correct sequence is Q R S P. Hence, D is the correct option.
