(c) W, R, V, T, U
(d) Q, T, V, W, S
(e) Q, R, V, T, U

Solutions -R cannot be operated at fourth place.
Since R is operated, so V must also be operated.
Also, S or U is to be taken at the end. Therefore, the possible combinations are QSV and TSV.
Now, Q must have also T as one of the program after it which is not possible. Hence, Q, S, V is incorrect.
