MQ2

M and Q difference is-4

                          sqrt(4)=2

RV2

R and V difference is 4

                           sqrt(4)=2

DM3

D and M difference is 9

                             sqrt(9)=3

here all are satisfying this property but in case of PS3

difference between index of P and Q - 3

sqrt(3) is not equal to 3 so

option A is the odd one.

D and M difference is 9 not 8 (D's place is 4 and M's place is 13)
