Given that,

  • $\text{P}$
    • French
    • Dutch
  • $\text{Q}$
    • Chinese
    • Japanese
  • $\text{R}$
    • Spanish
    • French
  • $\text{S}$
    • Dutch
    • Japanese

French is easier than Dutch; Chinese is harder than Japanese; Dutch is easier than Japanese, and Spanish is easier than French.

Using the above information we get, $\underbrace{{\color{Red}{\text{Chinese}}} > {\color{Magenta}{\text{Japanese}}}}_{{\color{orange}{\text{Most difficult pair of languages}}}} >{\color{Purple}{\text{Dutch}}}>{\color{Blue}{\text{French}}} > {\color{Green}{\text{Spanish}}}.$
