    Arrange P, Q, R, S to give the correct sequence of the paragraph given, below.
    P: Even as presidents from John E Kennedy to Bill Clinton denounced apartheid as a racist, untenable system, successive American administrations from the 1960s had friendly ties with South African governments and viewed Mandela with suspicion, if not outright hostility, through the prism of the Cold War.
    Q: And Mandela remained on a U.S. terrorism watch list from the 1970s until the late 2000s. That period covers the living presidents of that period - Jimmy Carter, Clinton and George W Bush - all of whom joined Obama at Mandela's memorial service at a sports stadium in Johannesburg's Soweto township, as well as Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George H.W Bush.
    R: The Nelson Mandela eulogized to the world by President Barack Obama as "a giant of history" and the "last great liberator of the 20th century" seemed a different person from the one the United States held at arm's length, to put it diplomatically, for much of his life and career.
    S: Comparing him to Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, Abraham Lincoln and America's founding fathers, Obama lauded Mandela for his leadership of a resistance movement, giving voice to the oppressed, holding a splintering nation together in a time of great peril and creating a constitutional order to preserve the freedoms he struggled to realize. Mandela, Obama said, was "a giant of history, who moved a nation toward justice and in the process moved billions around the world."
