    Given below is a report in a jumbled form. Arrange P, Q, R and S to make the report a readable one.
    P: Although the newspaper claims the nurse left a suicide note to her husband Ben Barboza and children Junal, 17, and Lisha, 14, a representative for the family says that they still want answers.
    Q: Jacintha Saldanha the nurse found dead after mistakenly patching through a prank call at the London hospital where Kate Middleton was being treated, reportedly left a suicide note, according to London?s Evening Standard.
    R: Last week, two Australian DJs pretended to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, asking for information about Middleton, who was hospitalized with severe morning sickness at the time. Saldanha answered the call at the reception desk and patched it through to Middleton's room, where a nurse provided detailed information about Middleton's well-being, thinking she was speaking to members of the Royal Family. The interview was broadcast on the radio show and picked up worldwide. Saldanha was later found unconscious near the hospital and pronounced dead by police.
    S:  "I am devastated with the tragic loss of my beloved wife Jacintha in tragic circumstances," Saldanha's husband said on his Facebook page.

    Direction: Read carefully the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
    With 1.21 billion people, India is currently the world's second largest country. India crossed the one billion mark in the year 2000; one year after the world's population crossed the six billion thresholds.
    Demographers expect India's population to surpass the population of China, currently the most populous country in the world, by 2030. At that time, India is expected to have a population of more than 1.53 billion while China's population is forecast to be at its peak of 1.46 billion.
    India's 2011 census showed that the country's population had grown by 181 million people in the prior decade. When India gained independence from the United Kingdom sixty years ago, the country's population was a mere 350 million.
    Since 1947, the population of India has more than tripled. In 1950, India's total fertility rate was approximately 6 children per woman. Nonetheless, since 1952 India has worked to control its population growth. The U.S. Census Bureau does predict a near-replacement total fertility rate of 2.2 to be achieved in India in the year 2050.
    India's high population growth results in increasingly impoverished and sub-standard conditions for growing segments of the Indian population. As of 2007, India ranked 126th on the United Nations' Human Development Index, which takes into account social, health, and educational conditions in a country.
    Population projections for India anticipate that the country's population will reach 1.5 to 1.8 billion by 2050. While only the Population Reference Bureau has published projections out to 2100, they expect India's population at the close of the twenty-first century to reach 1.853 to 2.181 billion.
    Thus, India is expected to become the first and only country on the planet that will ever reach a population of more than 2 billion.
    The word 'demographer' relates to:
     

    A)  Checking the changes in number or births and deaths

    B)  Having authority to check the population of a country

    C)  Being capable of taking into account the register of births and deaths

    D)  Keeping record of births and deaths of a place
