By going through the above criterion we can conclude the following statements

In the first forward trip, Q and R will go and on this trip, Q will row.

Now, R will come back on the 1st return trip and R will row.

In the 2nd forward trip, R and P will go and R will row.

Now, P will come back on the 2nd return trip and P will row.

In the 3rd forward trip, P and S will go and S will row.

**So, R rowed Twice. option C)**
