Hint: We are going to use basic proportionality theorem, Alternate interior angles and corresponding angles to solve this problem.

In $\vartriangle QRT,RT\parallel SP$ [By construction]

And PS intersects QT and QR at two distinct points P and Q.

Therefore, QT and QR will be divided in the same ratio.

$\dfrac{{QS}}{{SR}} = \dfrac{{PQ}}{{PT}}$ ..... (1) [Basic proportionality theorem]

Now $RS\parallel SP$ and PR is transversal.

Therefore, $\angle SPR = \angle PRT$.....(2) [Alternate interior angles]

And $\angle QPS = \angle PTR$..... (3) [Corresponding angles]

Also given that PS is the bisector of $\angle QPR.$

$ \Rightarrow \angle QPR = \angle SPR$

From equations (2) and (3) $\angle PTR = \angle PRT$

Therefore, PT = PR [Sides opposite to equal angles of a triangle are equal]

Putting PT= PR in equation (1)

$\dfrac{{QS}}{{SR}} = \dfrac{{PQ}}{{PR}}$

Hence proved.

Note: Basic proportionality theorem states that if a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle, intersecting the other two sides at distinct points, then the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.
