    Answer: (2) PRQS, RSPQ.
    Explanation:-
    P is the oldest but not the poorest.
    R is the richest but not the oldest.
    Q is the older than S but not than P and R.
    P is richer than Q but not than S.
    Then, P > R > Q > S.           (Arrange in descending order  according to age)

    R is the richest
    R > S > P > Q.                       (Arrange in descending order according to richness)
    Hence, the answer is (2) PRQS, RSPQ.
