Solution

The correct answer is option number -B

1st sentence-This was an important day for Alan.

Connectors from Part Q to Part P-

Connectors-For the first time he was going to hunt seals alone.

Sentence Q connects sentence P

Sentence Q-tells that for Alan it was an important day.Since pronoun `He' is used in other sentences,first sentence should mention the name.Option,Q is hence the correct choice.

The next sentence should explain why it is an important day for Alan 

Only sentence `P'  explains that 

For the 1st time he was going for hunting alone.

Connectors from Part P to Part R

Connectors-It was a cold day, but Alan would be warm

Connectors-First he put on his fur-lined jacket.

Now,only one option is remaining-

Then he put on mittens and boots of deerskin to protect his hands and feet from the cold

Last sentence will be -

Finally he picked up the gun he had cleaned so carefully the day before.

The correct sequence is therefore-QPRS.
