Hint: We need to complete the passage by choosing the option that best expresses its meaning.

Complete answer: We know that S1 states the benefits of rains. Hence, the next sentence should be in direct continuation with it.
The P part elaborates on the season when rain proves to be the most beneficial.
The R part proves how rain is beneficial during the summer.
The Q part establishes a cause and effect link that follows the R part.
Let us find out the proper order by proceeding in a step by step method.

S1- Rain is a beautiful gift of nature to mankind.
Out of all the options, only P part can follow from this statement as it introduces a new fact that is related to S1. This means that P = S2.

S2 - In summer, when the heat is intense, rain is a blessing.
We are now left with the Q part and R part. Only the R part gives us more information about S2. This means that R = S3.

S3 - It provides a great relief from the scorching heat of the sun.
This only leaves us with the Q part. Q part is an effect of S3. It is also the introduction of S5. Therefore, Q = S4.

S4 - Therefore, it is welcomed by all.
This is followed by S5 as given in the question.

The letters corresponding to S2, S3 and S4 are P, R and Q.
Therefore, the correct answer is option ‘b’.

Note: It is important to maintain the cause-effect relationship between the different parts, so that the passage expresses a complete meaning.
