Correct Answer - Option 3 : Data in both Statements I and II together are sufficient to answer the question.

According to the given information,

Statement (I) : T earns more than only one person, who is not P

So, _ > _ > _ > T > _

Statement (II): R earns more than three persons, Q earns the highest.

So, Q > R > _ > _ > _

Combining both the statements and arranging them in the order,

Q > R > P > T > S

Hence, data in both Statements I and II together are sufficient to answer the question.
